Flag and coat of arms of Silale (Taurage county - Taurages
apskritis, Silale district - Silales rajonas). The flag is
according to my personal observation from the flag show of
Mindaugas coronation 750th anniversary. The coat of arms is drawn
according to image from the book: The Heraldry of Lithuania.
