The eagle on the coat-of-arms of Torun/Thorn county appears to be modelled
after that of West or "Royal" Prussia: see this
webpage, and this one.

In fact, it is the same eagle. The black colour of Royal Prussia's eagle
was changed to white in 1995 (when the Torun voivodship Coat of Arms was adopted)
because it was thought that public opinion might not accept the black eagle.

There is new information about the flag of Torunski county in Kujawsko-Pomorskie
voivodship, Poland. The official
website states that the flag and coat of arms
were adopted on 6th March 2002 by County Assembly.
