Overview

In the last summer I started a campain at Lithuania seeking for their district (raion) flags. One of the answeres was from Panevezys - Banner of Arms since 18 October 1995.

The flag and the coat of arms of Panevezys district (Panevezio rajonas). The flag is according to my personal observation. The coat of arms I drew according to the picture from the book: The Heraldry of Lithuania. There is different flag and coat of arms for Panevezys City - red gates with three small towers and larger one rising above them, on afield of silver.

Panevezys district - Field divided per fess blue and silver, above two crossed silver sheaves of flax, below a red wooden plough with golden ploughshares. Flag proportions 5:6, free edges bordered with tight golden strip, fringe is silver, finial is a golden knob with two rings. The wooden plough arms granted in 1845 means agriculture, the sheaves (appeared as a modification in the 1920s instead of an obsolete symbol of the Kaunas governorate) representing the linen industry.
