Minsk Mazowiecki is a medium sized town located in south-east Poland, around 38 km east of Warsaw, the capital, situated in Mazowieckie province and near the international road between Warsaw - Terespol. The source of the name is the Mienia - river, which flows south from Minsk. The source of Minsk's coat of arms is the national emblem of Leliw city. It was confirmed in 1936 by local board and ministry of foreign affairs. Info from the Mińsk Mazowiecki website.

The flag is based on the "Leliwa" Coat of Arms of the Hlebowicz family, owners of the part of the town at the end of XVI th Century. Polish Coat of Arms have their own names, different from the family names of the families belonging to that particular Coat of Arms, something like clans.
