On 1 January 2012 the new commune of Oron was created by the merger of Bussigny-sur-Oron, Châtillens, Chesalles-sur-Oron, Ecoteaux, Oron-la-Ville, Oron-le-Châtel, Palézieux, Les Tavernes, Les Thioleyres and Vuibroye. On 1 January 2022 Essertes joined (see below).

The ten shingles symbolize the ten communes which merged in 2012. The colours are taken from the emblem of Oron-la-Ville, the capital of the former district.
