The flag was adopted 10 May 1999 after a design competition. Coat of arms in
the centre, based on information from this
webpage. Tatry or Tatrzański county is in Małopolskie vojvodship,
county seat: Zakopane (one of the few counties with a differing name for
county and county seat).

Here is a translation of the law on the flag of Powiat Tatrzański:
"In the center is an image of Our Lady of Jaworzyn from Wiktorowek, Queen of the Tatras, superimposed on the stylized highlanders' folk-art. All of it is placed on white background between two vertical green bands"
Not mentioned is a background behind the image of Our Lady - the mountain range featuring the peak of Giewont with the cross.

are at present characteristic for Polish vexillology. The vertical division
1:2:1 does occur frequently. When I get an answer from Tatry I'll let you
