Śląskie voivodship flag

[Śląskie voivodship flag] by Jarig Bakker, 24 Aug 2002

The assembly of the Silesian vojvodship (Śląskie) on 11 June adopted its Coat of Arms and flag. The Coat of Arms, proposed already 29 Jan 2001, is: "Azure an eagle or." The flag consists of three horizontal stripes (2-1-2) - blue, yellow and blue, the colors of the Coat of Arms
Proportions 5:8. After the emblems were approved by the State Heraldic Committee, they were adopted with 37 for and 2 against by the regional assembly. The eagle is the emblem of the Piast dynasty. The Coat of Arms has been designed by Barbara Widłak, from the Arts Academy in Kraków. Flag and Coat of Arms are here.

On Adam Kromer's site are two flags for Silesia: A BYB hor triband and a banner of arms. Adam Kromer's BoA is gold on light blue; I have used the Coat of Arms on the vojvodship webpage and replaced "or" by yellow. Adam has named this "FLAGA URZęDOWA", something like State flag.
