Poryte village flag

Here is another sub,sub, subnational flag of the tiny, little village (population 220): Poryte - formed from the amalgamation of villages of: Poryte Szlacheckie (Gentlemen's Poryte) and Poryte Wloscianskie (Peasantś Poryte) in Podlaskie Voivodship, Kolno County, Stawiski Commune (no former German name since last Sunday).
Their website says: "Second village in the Third Republic having its own Coat-of-Arms and flag.
Coat of Arms of the village of Poryte is based on the Arms of the Clan "Prawdzic" of Pawel Radzanowski (founder of Poryte) and all of Radzanowski family, as well as Niszczycki family, owners of the villages up to the middle of 17th century.
The heraldists took under consideration the suggestion of the local priest, Father Janusz M.Kotowski, to add the cross to the Arms as the basis of the foundation of the village (1375) and the settlement of the land around it, was the establishment of the Parish in 1386.
The arms and flag are the work (2006) of Mr.Tadeusz Gail - heraldist from Bialystok."
