Raba Wyżna is a commune in Nowy Targ county, Malopolskie vojvodship.
Its flag and CoA are at this
website. The bishop is St Stanislaw (1030-1079), who wakes Piotra from
the dead. This saint was also an important symbol of Polish nationhood.

According to "Petit Larousse Illustré", St. Stanislaw is the
patron saint of Poland. He was Bishop of Cracow from 1072 until his murder
by King Boleslaw II, whom he had excommunicated.
