Flag adopted some time in 2006.

"Arms: main charge of Klembów's Arms is a Polish heraldic figure "Rosochacz" (and because it's wavy, so it is called further: "Rosochacz falisty") resembling the letter "Y". Above it are three golden oak leaves; on the right of it is a silver column and on the left a golden horseshoe with a silver cavalier cross inside.
The background of the shield is green.
(NB: The heraldic term "Rosochacz" is as much un-translatable as "Rogacina").

The "rosochacz falisty" is symbolizing the local rivers: Rządza and Cienka; the oak leaves - Dębin Nature Reserve on the territory of the commune; the crowned column comes from the Coat of Arms of Klembowski family, first owners of these lands; the horseshoe with the cross is a noble Coat of Arms "Jastrzębiec" belonging to the Żymirski
family who also owned Klembów and surrounding villages. One of the Żymirskis was Brig.Gen.Franciszek Żymirski, a hero of the November Uprising of 1830.

Flag: a rectangle composed of three equal horizontal bands: yellow-green-yellow, with the white triangle superimpossed over all three bands in the right half (fly) part of the flag."
