Viesvenai (Telsiai District) - on a green field two golden
gyrfalcons separated by a silver narrow wavy bend. Flag
proportions 10:11, free edges bordered with a narrow golden
stripe, finial is a golden tip with two rings and golden bands.
The charge shows the location of the borough: between two
villages, both named Sakalai ("sakalas" means
"falcon" in Lithuanian), separated with Viesve river.
In Lithuania the falcon also symbolizes a warrior, defender.
