Proposed Mielec County Coat of Arms

[Mielec county CoA] by Jens Pattke

The proposed arms refer to the history and traditions of the county. The silver griffin suggests the arms of the Gryfit clan which owned these lands from the beginning of the 14th century (before that it was a property of the Benedictines of Tync.) From the name of the settlement, Mielec, this branch of the Gryfit clan formed its surname, Mieleccy. The symbols pictured on the flag and arms--the helmet with horns and the letter M--refer to the arms of the capital city of the county, Mielec. These arms are featured in the city's seal, which dates back to the 15th century.

Mielec City Flag

There's a description of the Mielec city flag at It says a flag of horizontal stripes of yellow, blue and red. In the center a yellow M. I suppose the same one as on the arms available at the site. Colors specified at the bottom of the page.
Adopted 11 September 1991.
