Overview

Birstonas - on a white field the arms of Birstonas: a fantastic fish squirting water. Flag proportions 5:7, free edges bordered with narrow white and blue rectangles framed on both sides with narrow silver stripes, finial is a golden knob with a ring. The arms symbolize the springs of mineral water, vital for this resort town. Also it reminds of the past symbol of Birstonas: the sculpture of a fish with mineral water running out of mouth, which was drowned together with large area of town, when the Kaunas water-power plant was built.
