Trawniki commune flag

Trawniki - rural commune, Świdnik County, Lubelskie Voivodship.

Arms and flag were adopted on February 13, 2003 (resolution # IV/16/2003).
"Arms are in the form of a so-called Spanish shield, divided into three parts.
On the green upper right field there is an initial "T". On the blue upper left field there is a golden Bishop's mitre (infula). On the large red lower field there are two silver Polish-style sabers, crossed.

Flag: Two ribbons, gold and silver, tied into a knot, divide the fields of the flag into four wedges: upper one - blue, lower one - green, and those on the sides - red."

Trawniki was the site of a Nazi concentration camp ("Ivan the Terrible" - John Demianyuk) and the SS Training Camp where Goralischer Waffen SS Legion was supposed to be created (never did), but the Russian, Ukrainian and Baltic units underwent extensive training.
