Brest métropole océane groups eight municipalities (all together, 213,221 inhabitants; 220 sq. km; website). The authority is seated in Brest, the biggest municipality of the community (114,868 inh.); the other members of the community are Bohars (3,554 inh.), Gouesnou (6,262 inh.), Guilers (7,613 inh.), Guipavas (13,909 inh.), Le Relecq-Kerhuon (11,121 inh.), Plougastel- Daoulas (13,708 inh.), and Plouzané (12,186 inh.).
The Communauté urbainz de Brest, established in 1974, was renamed to Brest métropole océane in 2005.

The flag of the authority is dark red with the authority's logo, in white monochrome version.
The logo, designed in November 2004, was modified on 18 February 2005 (most probably, following the modification of the name of the authority). The stand-alone logo has a white background, the writing in gray and the seamen's knot white on a dark red background.

The Communauté de communes de Cap Sizun - Pointe du Raz (15,333 inhabitants in 2018; 17,740 ha; website), created on 17 December 1993 , is composed if the municipalities of Audierne (seat), Beuzec-Cap-Sizun, Cléden-Cap-Sizun, Confort-Meilars, Esquibien, Goulien, Mahalon, Plogoff, Plouhinec, Pont-Croix, Primelin and Sein.
The flag of Cap Sizun - Pointe du Raz is based on the logo of the authority. It shows on a white background a sketchy geographical representation of the region framed within a light blue border. The green "leaf" represents Cap Sizun; the notch in the lower right part of the "leaf" most probably represents river Goyen, which is navigable from Audierne to Pont-Croix. The green triangle on the left of the logotype probably stands for the island of Sein, whereas the blue item between the Pointe du Raz and the island of Sein must represent the Vieille lighthouse.
