Nemunelio Radviliskis (Birzai District) - on red field two crossed golden cannon barrels with black eagles respectant, above silver star. Flag proportions 5:6, free edges bordered with silver rope, finial is golden arrow head with silver bands. The cartographic star means the Polar star and symbolizes that Nemunelio Radviliskis is the most northern settlement of Lithuania. The cannons mean the fort that existed there in 16th-17th centuries (built as far outpost of Birzai castle, destroyed around 1704), and fierce battles with Swedish army that were fought there during the Northern war. The eagles are the main charge of princely Radvila house: they have established and ruled the town, which is even named after them.
