Jab這nna flag

This is the "ordinary flag"". It is not clear from the site when it would be used - I guess we would have to have observers on the ground for this. Jablonna is in Legionowo county.

Jab這nna ceremonial flag

[Jablonna.ceremonial flag] by Pascal Gross, 26 Aug 2000, after image from this site.

It is interesting that the cerermonial flag was based on the arms, but using one part on one side, and the remainign components on the other. The arms are canting. Jablon' is Polish for apple tree, and jablonna would be an adjective from this - sort of like The Appley (village is implied). I know there's no such word as appley, but think of appley from apple as dotty is from dot. The village was originally called Jablonowo, which is a noun meaning much the same.
On the gminna's history page, I note some reference to a bishop, which would probably explain the crozier in the reverse(?) of the flag, while the other symbol is Zlota - a clan arm carried by the Potocki family, which had something to do with the place.

Jab這nna other flag

The images at the bottom are of the obverse (left) and reverse (right) of a single flag.  I can't make out the use of this flag, which combines the charges of the arms, and the other, a simple geometric arrangement of the colors.  I suppose the Polish word 'Gmina' is derived from the German 'Gemeinde'.
