In French, a "grange" is a barn*, and a "grangette" (a common toponym in Romand Swiss and Savoy) is probably a barn of smaller size.  This flag is canting.
*Note that a "grange" in this area is more than a barn: it was the small house located in median elevation inhabited during the summer season by the whole family and cattle.
