Favorite thing: As a city with its own unique identity it's no surprise that it has its own flag which you'll notice all over the place. The white star on the red background has been the city's symbol since 1545 although it was changed to a flag similar to that of Poland in 1938 before being reinstated in 1994.

Whilst it resembles a modern Communist banner it is in fact a historical heraldry symbol.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
