Because of a formal error the new symbols were once again adopted. The first attempt at this page relates to the law of 2008. (Uchwała nr XVII/102/2008 Rady Gminy w Kęsowie z dnia 2 kwietnia 2008 r. w sprawie ustanowienia wzorów herbu, flagi i pieczęci Gminy Kęsowo.

On March 11, 2010, the Law about the new symbols of Kęsowo was officially adopted again. (Uchwała nr XXXVI/210/2010 Rady Gminy Kęsowo z dnia 11 marca 2010r. w sprawie ustanowienia herbu, flagi i pieczęci gminy Kęsowo http://edzienniki.bydgoszcz.uw.gov.pl/WDU_C/2010/80/942/Akt.pdf)
