Perloja (Varena District) - on a silver field with green base
a golden armed brown bison with a golden Latin cross on its head.
Flag proportions 5:6, fringe is golden, finial is a golden tip
with an openwork Latin cross and knob, staff is green. The charge
of arms granted in 1792 follows the example of Kaunas city arms
published in an armory of 18th century, changing the colours and
misinterpreting wild ox as bison.
