At the end of WW II most German inhabitants of the town managed to escape the advancing Soviet troops, through Czechoslovakia to Germany. Many of them returned home after the war only to be deported to Siberia and Kazakhstan, or expelled to East Germany and Westphalia.
The new Arms and the brand new flag were adopted on March 31, 2009 (resolution
The Arms, chosen in the competition out of four final designs, are described as: "on a late-gothic shield divided horizontally by a wavy, silver and blue ribbon,
the upper part features on golden background a black half-eagle of the Lower Silesian Piasts, and the lower, red part, shows a silver "Maltese" cross" - four-armed and eight-pointed.
The wavy, blue and white ribbon separating the shield, represents the river Ślęza.
Flag: a rectangle in the ratio 5:8 composed of two equal horizontal bands: the upper one is blue and the lower one is silver (white).
The ceremonial flag of the commune bears the Arms in its center."
