Overview

Daujenai (Pasvalys District) - field quartered red and white, on q.1 and q.3 silver carriage with raised shafts woven with golden hops. Flag proportions 10:11, free edges bordered with red and silver rope, finial is golden knob with ring. The carriage reflects the local folk tale about name of town: during market day in Whit Sunday so many people arrived that carriages were parked with unbridled horses and raised shafts. People said "daug ienu" ("many shafts"), so the name Daujenai appeared. The hops mean the old traditions of beer-making.
