Pomorskie vojvodship coa since September 2001: black griph on yellow
shield, like on pl)pm.gif

Pomorskie vojvodship has an official coat of arms since September 2001.
It is similar to the little yellow shield (without a crown) with black
griph, as on your coat of arms (this coat was only a proposition). Black
griph is a symbol of Cassubia and Pomorskie coat is similar to Cassubian.
There aren't any vojvodship flag, but I heard, that it was proposition:
yellow 2:3 flag with black griph (like this on coa). Griph was in center,
about 50% of height.

In today local TV news there was an information about Pommeranian voyevodship
CoA (black griph on yellow background; this project was accepted by Sejmik
Wojewodzki (local parliament) in September 2001). Few days ago Komisja
Heraldyczna (Heraldical Commission) rejected this project (It wasn't said
why; probably because it is only a symbol of Cassubia, not all of
Pomerania). Sejmik changed this CoA slightly and ratifyed it as official CoA.
