LAMBINOWICE Commune - NYSA County - OPOLSKIE Voivodship
(proniunced < wambino'vitze>)
Old German name: Lamsdorf (the site of big POW camp in WW I ( for French soldiers) and even bigger camp during WW II - 300,000. Also a Polish camp for Germans to be expelled west in 1945) - not a very happy place.
This site shows the elaborate Arms of the Commune:
CoA - right side - half of the Piast Eagle - in the middle - half of the sword - left side - image of St.Catherine of Alexandria symbolizing martrydom.
Distinguishing the Arms are two golden, Upper Silesian, eagles supporting the shield.
On top of the shield there is another, small shield, red, with two naked swords and a burning torch. This is to commemorate
the memory of those fallen in World Wars.
At the bottom of the webpage there is a short description of the flag:
"three vertical bands - Blue, Gold, and Red. The blue band is always at the hoist."
Now it is clear why Romania is adding its Arms to the flag. If Tchad will follow, nobody ever will get them mixed-up
