"Arms: on the blue, Spanish-style shield a white bovine (Bos taurus)

The cross is there to commemorate the ownership of the area by the Komturia of the Teutonic Knights.
But the color is changed from black to white to stress the spirit of conciliation and to forget and forgive all the past wars, pains, mistrust and revenge among the nations.
Flag: a rectangle in the ratio 3:5 composed of three equal horizontal
The colors were chosen to stress the values of Christian-European culture and are reflection of the colors of the Arms of the commune.
