Waśniów flag

Waśniów commune has a flag, you can find it on this site.
Description of the flag: Three parallel horizontal bends. Top one is white (1/2 of the flag width), middle black, bottom red (both 1/4 of the flag width).
Meaning: The colours are derived from the coat of arms of the commune. White (silver) stands for the swan, red for the red field the swan is on. Some old variants of the coat of arms had a black swan. This may be the reason why the middle bend is black.
Waśniów commune is in Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski county in Wojewodztwo Świętokrzyskie (Holy Cross Mountains Voivodship) in central Poland. The capital of that voivodship is the city of Kielce.
