Antaliepte - on a white field with a blue pale (white-blue-white 1-2-1) a small silver bridge and above a golden Latin cross.
Flag proportions 10:13, free edges bordered with a narrow silver stripe, finial is a golden knob.
The bridge is canting: "antaliepte" means "place on / at a small bridge" in Lithuanian. The cross attributes both the local church of Discovery of St. Cross and symbolizes the merits of monks (monasteries existed there in 18th - early 19th centuries and in early 20th century) for the enlightenment of the local people. Blue symbolizes loyalty and fortitude of the local people.
