Flag of Siauliai county - Siauliai apskritis. Coat of Arms at <>. All county flags and Coat of Arms adopted on 2004 by Heraldic Commission of Lithuanian Department of Interior.

Siauliai county - on silver field charging red armed black bear, and blue bordure with 10 Jogaila crosses. Flag proportions 5:6, free edges bordered with silver rope, finial is golden tip.
The bear means Samogitia, as most of county lands are Samogitian. For distinguishing it from the arms of Samogitia and Telsiai county, the collar is removed and the colour of field is changed from red to silver. The silver field also reflects the traditional white colour of flags and battle banners of Samogitia.
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.
