Pajevonys (Vilkaviskis District) - on blue field over green
threehill two golden bells. Flag proportions 5:6, free edges
bordered with tight golden strip, finial is golden knob with two
rings. The charge reminds that once the local church had two
bell-towers with bells "St. John" and "St.
Joseph", but bells were taken by German occupational regime
during World War I, and the towers were destroyed by
German army in World War II. So the bells hanging on heaven
symbolize the losses of past.
