Koszele [kɔˈʂɛlɛ] (Belarusian: Кашэлі, Podlachian: Košeliê, Ukrainian: Кошелі) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Orla, within Bielsk County, Podlaskie Voivodeship, in north-eastern Poland.[1] It lies approximately 12 kilometres (7 mi) south-east of Bielsk Podlaski and 48 km (30 mi) south of the regional capital Białystok.

It is in one of five Polish/Belarusian bilingual Gmina in Podlaskie Voivodeship regulated by the Act of 6 January 2005 on National and Ethnic Minorities and on the Regional Languages, which permits certain gminas with significant linguistic minorities to introduce a second, auxiliary language to be used in official contexts alongside Polish.[2]
