Sirvintos (Sirvintos District) - On a field divided per pale red and blue a silver moose head and above a silver sword with a golden hilt. Flag proportions 2:3, finial is a golden tip. The moose represents the rich local fauna and is canting: "sirvis" is the synonym of moose in the local dialect of Lithuanian. The sword symbolizes the historical battles, as Sirvintos land depended to Kernave, one of the main fortification complexes of early Lithuania.
