Here is the flag of Elblag county, Warmińsko-mazurskie vojvodship (NE
Poland). It has been seen by Chrystian Kretowicz, based on a resolution
made on 6 February 2008.
The Statute (with the addendum displaying the Coat of Arms and the flag) is available here, but they made it very cumbersome to get to the actual text of the statut. (Chriś words). The Coat of Arms is displayed at the county website. The Powiat Elblag didn't adopt a separate law about flag and arms. The symbols were defined in the Statutes of 26 September 2003:
Uchwala Nr VIII/72/03 Rady Powiatu w Elblagu z dnia 26 wrzesnia 2003 roku w sprawie ustanowienia herbu i flagi powiatu oraz zmian w Statucie Powiatu Elblaskiego.
Flagdescription: red, in center the image of the county arms.
Coat of Arms: gules a koff or with sail argent and an inescutcheon per fess argent and gules, two crosses formy countercharged.
Both the koff and the inescutcheon remind of medieval times when Elblag
city (German: Elbing) was an important Hanseatic city.
