[Flag of Châtillon] image by Pascal Gross

Or, a Chestnut Tree Vert trunked Sable issuant from a Mount of the second and on a Chief Gules three Mullets Argent pierced.

The image represents the "crest of Châtillon", one of the only places where chestnut-trees remain.
Pascal Gross, 9 October 2000

The star-shaped devices on the emblem are spur wheels. They are adopted from the emblem of the former Lords of Font and Molière. It appears also in the emblems of the Fribourg communes of e.g. Châbles, Estavayer, Font, Lully, Ménières or Murist.
