Dieveniskes (Salcininkai District) - on a blue field two bound
golden horseshoes bendwise. Flag proportions 10:11, free edges
decorated with silver rectangles, finial is a golden knob. The
bound horseshoes symbolize harmonious common living of
several ethnic groups (first of all Poles and Lithuanians).
The blue colour symbolizes loyalty and consistency, also it is
attributed to the local church of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
