[Kurimany flag] by Jarig Bakker, 26 Feb 2001

Kurimany is a municipality in Levoča district in north central Slovakia. Its flag and CoA are at this site - Kurimany's population was 339 in 1992 census. Kurimany was probably established around 1250 AD by German colonists. Some 8-11th century Slavic settlements were present in the area earlier. There is a small church of St Quirinius in the village. St Quirinius of Neuss is a patron of Kurimany. His cult was probably brought to the village by the German colonists.
