Hranice flag

Hranice flag by Jarig Bakker, 5 Aug 2001

There is an erroneous vertical hanging flag of this town near Olomouce in eastern Czechya on this site. Its Coat of Arms is here.
Jarig Bakker, 9 May 2000.

The flag is horizontal, with the central diagonal running from bottom left to top right.

On this site is another (erroneous) flag. From the description I gather that the blue diagonal line stands for the river Bečva, which flows through Hranice in a broad bent. On the flag I sent previously the Bečva flowed from NW to SW (which is a fact in the eastern part of the town - on this one from NE to SW (which is the case in Western Hranice). This image is a mirror image of the previously reported one... The yellow color stands for Moravia and red for the hilly countryside.
Hranice (or in German: Mährisch Weisskirchen) was previously a Bezirkshauptmannschaft (district capital?).

Petr Exner, in Vexilologicky Lexikon prapori obci CR (1991-1994), has a flag with a much thinner blue diagonal stripe.

The correct ratio of diagonal stripes of the flag of Hranice (CZ) is (red-yellow-blue-yellow-red) 4:3:1:3:4. Source - Petr Exner.
