Akmene (not to be confused with Akmene District which uses the flag of Naujoji Akmene) - on a silver field with a green bordure on the free edges five arrows two over three, heads of arrows silver, shafts tenne, fleches blue. Flag proportions 1:1, fringe is blue, finial is a silver arrow head with cap and inscription "PRO LIBERTATE" ("For freedom" in Latin), and golden bands. The charge is a 5 times multiplied charge of arms granted in 1792, and the motto is replaced from the shaft of the arrow to the  finial. The arms should symbolize readiness to defend freedom with weapons, as on many arms of Lithuanian border towns, granted in late 18th century.
