Overview

Flag and coat of arms of Žagare (Siauliai county - Siauliu apskritis, Joniskis district - Joniskio rajonas) according to my personal observation from the flag show of Mindaugas coronation 750th anniversary. The coat of arms is drawn according to image from official site of Joniskis district municipality (<www.siauliai.aps.lt>).

Žagare city is in Joniskis district in Siauliai county, Lithuania. It has a population of 2,169, and is center of Zagare Eldership, which has additional 2,000 inhabitants.
From wikipedia: "The foundation of Þagarë dates back to the 12th century. It was an important center of Þiemgaliai warriors, who fought against the Teutonic Order. Today Þagarë is the administrative center of the Þagarë Regional Park, known for its valuable urban and natural heritage."
Valentin Poposki, 8 March and 17 June 2007

Zagare - On a white field with a red pale (white-red-white 1-2-1) two silver keys joined cross-like. Flag proportions 10:13, fringe is silver, finial is a silver knob with a ring.
The charge has several meanings:
(1) canting the old name of Rakte (Raktuve) castle, from which the town originates - "raktas" means "key" in Lithuanian,
(2) symbolizing two towns Senoji Zagare and Naujoji Zagare, later merged to one,
(3) meaning the border town,
(4) attributing the local church of St. Peter and St. Paul,
(5) reminder of the ancient Semigallians tribe joined two nations (Lithuanians and Latvians).
The red colour symbolizes courage and blood spilt for the country, and the white colour symbolizes innocence, honour and honesty.
