Gmina Dobroszyce is a rural gmina (commune) in Oleśnica County, Lower Silesian Voivodship, in south-western Poland. Its seat is the village of Dobroszyce, which lies approximately 8 kilometres (5 mi) north-west of Oleśnica, and 26 kilometres (16 mi) north-east of the regional capital Wrocław.

  • In 1655, the locality was acquired by Silvius Nimrod von Würtemberg-Oels, Prince of the Duchy of Oels (Księstwo Oleśnickie - Herzogtum Oels - Ducatus Olsnensis)
  • 1663 - city rights
  • 1676 - renamed Juliusburg and received a CoA, which, since 2003, once again represents the commune.

  • 1792 - expiration of local Würtemberg dynasty - Duchy of Oels taken by the Braunschweigs.
  • 1884 - part of Duchy of Oels (with Juliusburg) goes to Friedrich August von Wettin, future king of Saxony, whose descendants own Juliusburg until 1945.

New Arms and flag were adopted on May 6, 2003. Designed by Mr.Michal Kozuchowski and based on the original CoA of 1676.

NB: it isn't made clear anywhere, but I do believe there is a plain yellow and red horizontal flag used as a civic one, and another, with the CoA as the ceremonial (official) one.
