    Klaipeda county - On a white field the arms of Klaipeda County and a blue bordure with 10 golden Jogaila crosses. Flag proportions 5:6, free edges bordered with golden rope, finial is a golden lance head with golden bands. The arms are based on the seal of Vogt (lieutenant) of Klaipeda, first evidence in 1271.
    The blue border with 10 Jogaila crosses is a common element for all counties of Lithuania: the border means dependence, the Jogaila cross means Lithuania, and 10 means the number of counties. Colours golden on blue are traditional for Jogaila cross in Lithuanian heraldry.
