Kadzidło - rural commune, Ostrołęka County, Mazowieckie Voivodship - German name: Weihrauchstadt (1939-44).
Located in the Kurpie ethno-region of Poland and one of the centers of Kurpie culture.

Arms adopted on March 14, 2003 (resolution # VII/27/03).
"Arms: two juniper trees and a strand of amber. The name of the village (which means 'incense' in Polish), goes back to the tradition of digging for amber and processing it. Pieces of amber were mixed with juniper and used as incense in churches."

Flag was adopted later - the date unknown.
It is a rectangle composed of three equal horizontal bands: green-yellow-green.
