The first written notices are from 1251. Ľubica certainly belongs to the oldest community in the region of Spiš. In 1271 the Hungarian king Stephen V granted Ľubica the town rights. With the privilege the village Ľubica joined the member of royal towns. In the 17th century it was still among the the richest towns of Spiš and it possessed the right to hold 3 annual markets. The situation got worse when Ľubica was given to Poland by the Hungarian ruler Žigmund as a pawn in the year 1412. It was returned to the previous native country in the year 1878. Many big fires have characterised its history. The fire service has a rich and interesting history. Even now you can find a functioning fire engine that dates from the 19th century. The utilization of curative sulphuric springs is also connected with the history of Ľubica. At one of these springs in 1714 the colony was founded called Ľubické Kúpele. But this colony was sentenced to destruction when a military base was established in this region in 1952. Another cause of decline occured when Ľubica was joined to the town of Kežmarok in the year 1974. In 1992 it was separated from Kežmarok and again became an independent community and it revived. Its current aim is to maintain a link with its history while developing into a small town. There are 3600 inhabitants.

At this site is a swallowtailed flag with the same pattern. I don't know how official this is, I'm just reporting it...
