new Gliwice county flag

Already on August 25, 2005 the Gliwice County adopted a flag ( see below). Also there was a controversy with the Heraldic commission. Point of criticism was the crossed hammer and ear. Both figures do not represent Gliwice County. Despite the negative advice of the commission the symbols were adopted.

After a veto of the Marshall of the voivodship of Śląskie (Upper Silesia) new symbols were adopted on 31 Aug.2006. Now typical local symbols were used. The tower with the yellow roof originated from the coat of arms of Gliwice city.
