Nevarenai (Telsiai District) - on a blue field a golden
carriage with two women, above a golden Latin cross between two
silver 8-pointed stars. Flag proportions 10:11, fringe is golden,
finial is a golden knob. The charge reflects the local folk tale
about the origin of the town name: a wood with swamps was there.
Once two ladies in a carriage lost their way and were mired down
in swamp. They started shouting their names: Neva and Rena. When
the ladies promised to build a church, local people heard their
names and came with help. So the name of newly established town
appeared. The Latin cross of charge is also related to
the local church of the crucified Jesus.
