Flagey-Echezeaux


Flagey’s name comes from the gallo-roman word « Flavius ». But it also can come from « Fla » meaning « blond wheat » and « gey » meaning « fertile land ».
Echezeaux comes from « chesal » which gave the word « cabane » (hut). Remains of gallo-roman construction has been found, showing the presence of a village in part built on pils. It was an huge place at the marshy border between Eduens (in south) and Lingons (in north).

Agriculture isn’t the only activity in Flagey-Echezeaux : since 12th century, Abbey of Cîteaux owns vineyard in the village.

The « salt road » created by monks of Cîteaux went through Flagey-Echezeaux to reach Vergy.
