Pandelys (Rokiskis District) - on a green field a flying golden armed silver falcon with two red pinions on the left wing holds a golden branch of oak, on the golden chief 6 red 7-pointed stars, among them second in line a blue crescent. Flag proportions 5:6, free edges bordered with a narrow silver stripe, the finial is a silver lance head. The 7-pointed stars represent the days of week, and the second day in the old Latin calendar is Monday symbolized by Moon, so the name of town is reflected: it originates from Polish "poniedzialek" ("Monday"). The injured falcon represents the fight for freedom of Lithuania (inhabitants of Pandelys participated actively in uprisings of 1831, 1863, 1905, independence war of 1918-1920 and especially in guerrilla warfare, which lasted there since 1944 till 1950ies), and the branch of oak symbolizes fortitude.
