Mazowieckie Wojewodsto (vojvodship) is a new region formed around and with capital Warsaw.
Jarig Bakker, 3 Sept 2000

Indeed, on 29 May 2006 the Sejmek adopted new symbols. In the letter I received it was written that new symbols would be discussed om 26 May in the Sejmek. I did not expect a positive decision so soon. But the Marshall (=President) didn't sign yet.

Here is the new flag of Mazowieckie Wojewodsto, available on this webpage.
Pascal Gross, 13 Jun 2005

Flag adopted on June, 8 2005 by XXIXth session of the Sejm (parlament) of the Voivodship of Mazowieckie (Mazovia).
Jens Pattke, 13 Jun 2005

I have a letter dated 8 May 2006 from the office of the Sejmek (Parliament) of the Voivodship Mazowiecki. The flag of that voivodship was resolved upon and adopted by the Sejmek on 9 Apr 2005. Based on a negative verdict of the Polish Heraldic Committee the Marshall (President?) of the voivodship refused to put his signature below the resolution.
So the flag was rejected and it is illegal to use it. It is now inofficial, because the image of the Piast-Eagle is not in agreement with the version of the seal used in the 12th and 13th centuries.
