The flag of the County was adopted in October 2002.
The information about it is very scarce.
The "statut" (undated) states laconically that "the County has the Arms and the flag as shown in the addendums 1 & 2", but the addendums are not provided on the net.
I managed to find an article in the local weekly "Kurek Mazurski", dated April 23, 2009, which shows and describes the County's flag and, additionally, shows the flag of the commune of Jedwabno along with the announcement informing about the competition for the flag of the commune Rozogi: <http://www.kurekmazurski.pl/?art=8462>
Coat of Arms of the Szczytno County is a Spanish-style heraldic shield divided
diagonally by the slanted, ascending line into two fields. First field
features two green pine trees on green grass. In the foreground there is
a jumping Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) facing to the right.
On the second, red field, there is an image of Virgin Mary with the Baby Jesus.
Above the shield there is a ribbon with the legend "powiat szczycieński".
The Coat of Arms combines the elements from the Arms of the only two towns in the County: Szczytno and Pasym.
The flag is composed of three horizontal bands in the proportion 3:1:1.
The upper band is blue, the middle one - white, and the lower one - red.
On the blue band there are the Arms of the County.
