Biskupice commune flag

Biskupice - rural commune, Wieliczka County, Małopolskie Voivodship.
The commune's seat is in the village of Trąbki, not in Biskupice. There is not much to say about it. Most of the residents commute to work in Cracow.

Arms and flag adopted on December 3, 2003 (resolution # XII/96/03).
"Arms: on the Spanish-style shield of blue color there are charges symbolizing all three parishes of the commune. Main charge is an image of St.Martin sharing his cloak with the beggar. That's the symbol of the Biskupice Parish.
On the right side there are so-called Peter's keys symbolizing the St.Peter and Paul church in the Bodzanów Parish ( note the absence of the rope between the keys, which is reserved only for the Vatican and Papacy symbols).
Finally on the upper left side is a cavalier's cross representing the Lazany Parish which has a Church of the Founding of the Holy Cross.
The disparity in sizes of respective charges was necessary for practical reasons because of the space limitations.

Flag: a rectangle in the ratio of 5:8 divided into three vertical bands in the proportions:
1/4:1/2:1/4 and in colors: blue-white-blue.
The widest, middle white band provides the background for the commune's Coat of Arms."
