The charge symbolizes the famous Lentvaris manor (earlier the property of the Tyszkiewicz counts) and its unique park, designed by the French architect Edouard Francois Andre. The park is rich in different species of trees, but predominant are maples. Maples also are predominant in the town, especially in Klevu aleja (Maples alley).
