Drohiczyn Diocese

Here is the flag of Drohiczyn Diocese in Podlasie region.
The flag was inaugurated on April 2, 2009 by the decree of the Bishop of Drohiczyn, Antoni Dydycz, on the 10th Anniversary of the Pope John Paul II's visit there.
The flag ratio is 5:8 and it is composed of three vertical bands in colors: yellow-white-red.
These colors represent Poland and the Vatican and stress the close ties between Poland and the Holy See ("Polonia semper Fidelis")

The other meaning of the colors is:
Yellow - generosity, power, goodness and light
white - innocence and honesty
red - love, courage and sacrifice

On the middle, white band, the "Drohiczyn Cross" is placed.
It is split in the middle to symbolize the divisions among Christians. The figure of Jesus and the fisherman's net are meant to symbolize the desire for unity - "for all to be one".

There is, at least, one more flag of a diocese in Poland (Torun).
