There is a little legend, which says :" Once, the Prussian Prince (Grand Elector) Friedrich Wilhelm I (1620-1688) was dining in the local Inn during his brief stay in Gizycko.The innkeeper served him three carps and the fish was to such a liking of the Prince, he decided to grant the city its Coat-of-Arms, three carps on the shield, exactly as he had seen them on his plate" Unfortunately, the legend has a serious problem with history as the CoA was really granted well before prince's birth, in 1612.

Giżycko commune flag

[Gizycko commune flag by Jens Pattke, 7 Jan 2003

From Flagdatabank 11, Dec 1999: "On 30 June 1999 Giżycko adopted a new flag: gyronny resulting in twelve triangles, white alternating with light blue, charged with the CoA, which is horizontally divided. The white upper part is charged with a black cormorant, the light blue lower part with a white fish."
The CoA is from this site with Polish and German text, where one can learn that the German name of this commune in Warminsko-Mazurskie vojvodship is Lötzen. It is in the Giżycko county.
