The "statut" of the commune doesn't even mention the Arms or the flag.
The archived resolutions of the Commune's Council don't go back far enough
to obtain relevant texts.
I found the flag in the article of the local weekly "Kurek Mazurski" (April 23, 2009).
Arms of the Jedwabno Commune show the red castle with two black cormorants sitting on it.
The castle symbolizes the original inhabitants of the area - the Old Prusian tribe of Galindians.
The black cormorants are native to the area.
Representaton of the water in the Arms (white and blue waves) symbolizes the numerous lakes and rivers of the commune.
The flag, supposedly adopted in 1999, is composed of three vertical
bands in the proportion of 1:4:1 where the extreme bands are red and the
middle field is yellow.
In the center of the yellow field there is an element from the Arms of the commune - the black cormorant.
