Jasienica Rosielna - rural commune, Brzozów County, Podkarpackie Voivodship - Yiddish name: Yashnitza.
Gmina Jasienica Rosielna is a rural commune in Brzozów County, Subcarpathian Voivodship, in south-eastern Poland. Its seat is the village of Jasienica Rosielna, which lies approximately 9 kilometres (6 mi) north-west of Brzozów and 32 km (20 mi) south of the regional capital Rzeszów.
Area: 57.55 (22.2 sq.mi); Population: 7,380 (2006); Land under cultivation - 62%; forests - 28%.

First mentioned in written documents in 1442. It was a dairy town famous for its eggs.
On August 11, 1942, at 8 AM, a company of the Gestapo and a unit of the Russian Liberation Army (Vlasov Army) surrounded the local ghetto and by 7 PM one thousand Poles of Jewish origin were shot to death - small children had their skulls crashed by hitting their heads against the trees.

Arms and flag adopted on April 6,2009
"Arms: on the blue field a half-third of the silver cross above the two golden laurel branches.
Flag: rectangular in the ratio 5:8, composed of three vertical bands in proportions 1:4:1 where the extreme bands (narrow) are blue and the middle (wide) band is white. On the middle band the Arms are placed."

The new symbols have to be approved by the Heraldic Commission of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration in Warsaw, but it shouldn't be any problem.
