Siluva (Raseiniai District) - on blue field with golden cape
the Virgin Mary with the infant Jesus standing on a black stone,
under the charge on red bend in golden letters motto "ventoji
eme iluvos" ("Holy land of Siluva").
Flag proportions 5:6, free edges bordered with a very narrow
golden stripe, finial is golden knob. The charge refers
to the earliest in Europe Marian apparition in 1612, which
supported the victory of Catholicism against Calvinism and made
Siluva one of largest spiritual centres in Lithuania.
