Flag of Verneuil-sur-Seine - Image by Arnaud Leroy, 13 November 2002
The municipality of Verneuil-sur-Seine (15,524 inhabitants in 2007; 943 ha) is located on river Seine.
The name of Verneuil comes from the Gaul word verno, "an alder". There are more than 230 French toponyms based on verno. The Latin name of the alder, alnus, gave the French modern word aulne but only 57 toponyms, all to be found in the north of the country.
Verneuil is known for its watersports and recreation park, built around ponds made by backwaters of the Seine.
