Viesite (town in Jekabpils district) adopted their flag in November 18, 1999 (date of consecration). In background of flag are colors of flag of Selija (Selonia - traditional etnographic and historic province on left bank of Daugava), in cenre Coat of Arm of the town is placed. It means there is also flag of Selonia - I never heard about that. There was latvian students corporation Selonia in Derpt university but I can't remember their colors and how this is associated with real Selonia.
