Herby -rural commune, Lubliniec County, Śląskie Voivodship.
Gmina Herby is a rural gmina (commune) in Lubliniec County, Silesian Voivodeship, in southern Poland. Its seat is the village of Herby.
Area: 50.47 sq.km (19.5 sq.mi); Population: 6,981 (2006).
In the years 1815-1915 the village of Herby was situated right on the border between Prussia and Russia and was divided by that border having two separate railroad stations, the Prussian one and the Russian one just a mile or so away.
As a result of the plebiscite of 1922 both halves of the village were united and went to Poland. In the old Russian terminal there is now a small railroad museum.

Flag, in present form, adopted on May 28, 2008 (resolution # XVI/214/08).
Arms adopted earlier - exact date unknown.
There are no descriptions of either Arms or flag available anywhere, which is very sad.
