The flag of Paloznak - Coat of Arms in the
center of a plain white flag is flown in front of the city hall.
It is a small community on the north shore of the Balaton Lake
(the largest lake in central Europe), in Hungary near
Balatonfured, where our family spends one month a year with the
grandparents. It is a small village, which just became a city on
a south sloping hill with many small wineries. The most popular
wine around here is the riesling. Paloznak's only landmark is a
small church, which is visible from many miles away, even from
the other side of the lake. It is part of the flag as are the
waves of the Balaton, the grapes and the hills. There is a very
high concentration of the Hungarian "Elite", who own
their vacation homes here.
