On May 13, 1988, the town and its vicinity were struck by a rare tornado
- lot of damage - overturned bus with 9 people injured.
In September of the same year an exotic piranha fish was discovered in Pilica River. Nobody knows if there is more of them still in the river, lurking for prey.
Arms and flag adopted in 2003
"Arms: on a red shield a white tower with blue, peeked roof and open
gate with yellow doors.
On both sides of the tower there are silver swords with golden handles. The right one's pointing up and the left one down.
Flag: of yellow and red colors divided diagonally by the blue stripe
ascending from the lower left corner to the upper right one.
The Arms are placed on the yellow field."
