The flag of Tercan (photo, photo) is white with the municipality's emblem. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality".
The emblem features the complex built by Melike Mama Hatun, who ruled
the Saltukid state of Erzurum from 1190 to 1200. The complex is made of
her mausoleum, a caravansarai, a mosque, a hammam and a bridge.
