Originally the coat of arms were "D'or la fasce ondée d'azur" (see below), symbolizing the Rhone which runs through Chessel. In 1926, the communal authorities placed a crescent in the higher part of the flag: this represented the old "Café de la Turquie" and was removed in 1958. The Council of State of the Canton of Vaud has accepted a request in 2004 to place the crescent back on the flag.
