Overview

Flag and coat of arms of Silute (Klaipeda county - Klaipedos apskritis, Silute district - Silutes rajonas). The flag is according to the photo from official site of Silute district municipality (<silute.kryptis.lt> - this flag is named the flag of Silute district. I think it is wrong because the city and the district could not have same flag or coat of arms). The coat of arms is drawn according to image from the book: The Heraldry of Lithuania.
