Presentation of Bussy-Saint-Georges

The municipality of Bussy-Saint-Georges (26,8080 inhabitants in 2018; 1,339 ha) is located 30 km east of Paris.

Bussy-Saint-Georges was in the 19th century a rural village, with hardly 500 inhabitants. Decrees signed on 6 June 1826 and 15 August 1827 transferred parts of the municipal territory to the neighboring municipalities of Ferrières and Jossigny, respectively. Recently, the municipal territory was increased with 180.5 ha taken from the municipalities of Bussy-Saint-Martin, Collégien and Ferrières.
Bussy was known in the Middle-Ages as Villa Buxido. Bussy-Saint-Georges and Bussy-Saint-Martin were separated in the 13th century; beforehand, the two villages formed a single domain ran by the lords of Bussy.

Flag of Bussy-Saint-Georges

The flag of Bussy-Saint-Georges (photo),is white with the municipal logo. Before 2007, the municipality used a white flag with the former, slightly different version of the logo.
The PR department of the municipality kindly provided the meaning of the logo, which was emdend in 2007. The vertical red stripe represents the recent development of the new boroughs of Bussy along the "backbones" made by the railway and the A4 highway. The gradation in the colours represents the progress towards the future. The building is the Town Hall of Bussy.
