Grajewo county

Grajewo County (Polish: powiat grajewski) is a unit of territorial administration and local government (powiat) in Podlaskie Voivodeship, north-eastern Poland. It came into being on January 1, 1999, as a result of the Polish local government reforms passed in 1998. Its administrative seat and largest town is Grajewo, which lies 76 kilometres (47 mi) north-west of the regional capital Białystok.

Grajewo County CoA shows in the cloth a golden elk with black eyes. Over the elk in the upper left corner a eightpointed golden star. Grajewo County Flag is a rectangular red cloth an aspect ratio of 5:8, in canton placed the emblem of the Grajewo County, elka and star. The flag and CoA were adopted May 28, 2013.


It was preceded by two projects, which had a semi-official status. The Grajewo County Council had the projects officially accepted, but the Polish Heraldic Commission rejected these projects.
