Adutiskis (Svencionys District) - on a silver field a black rider holding a lance with a forked pennon in Lithuanian national colours: yellow, green, red. Flag proportions 5:6, free edges bordered with yellow, green and red rope, finial is a golden tip, staff is dark grey. The charge refers to Adutiskis being the most eastern (in northern half of Lithuania) stronghold of Lithuanian identity in the times of the Polish regime (1920-1939) and is a reminder of the Lithuanian custom of Vilnius land: performing protest actions mounted and with banners or bands of national colours. In particular, people of Adutiskis were repressed by Polish police in 1930 and in 1936 due to such actions.
