Ukmerge (Ukmerge District) - on a blue field in a silver lozenge on a blue terrace a golden ruined, but under restoration, house with a red roof, over a red heart and upon an opened silver book, on the right page a red rose with green leaves, on the left page a red calf. Flag proportions 10:11, fringe is silver, finial is a silver lance head with knob and silver bands. The charge of arms granted in 1792 was designed by citizens. The ruined house under restoration symbolizes the city reviving from destruction. The opened book symbolizes city rights, and the heart symbolizes joy for those rights. The rose comes from the arms of Juozapas Kucevskis, the then vogt (bailiff) of city. The calf comes from the family arms of grantor King Stanislaus Augustus Poniatowski. The heart, rose and calf together also symbolize the motto, which was written on arms in 1792 but abolished in modern times: "Eternal gratitude to Friend, to King".
