The new emblem of Bioggio is composed of the emblems of the former communes which merged with Bioggio in 2004. The red-blue background refers to the colours of the cantonal arms.

On 4 April 2004 the commune of Bioggio merged with Bosco Luganese and Cimo. It kept its old name but got a new emblem. On 20 April 2008 the commune of Iseo joined them (see below).
