New Arms and flag were adopted on May 6, 2003.
Designed by Mr.Michal Kozuchowski and based on the original CoA of 1676.
NB: it isn't made clear anywhere, but I do believe there is a plain
yellow and red horizontal flag
used as a civic one, and another, with the CoA as the ceremonial (official)
one. Chrystian Kretowicz 5 Dec 2008
