Here is the flag of the municipality of Velká Chmelištná in the Central
Bohemian region (okres Rakovník) in Czechia. It was adopted 5 October 2004
and published in Petr Exner's Vexillological Lexicon of Czech municipal
Description: yellow, a green trefoil (???) with four cones and two
smaller leaves. ("chmel" = hop-plant, so I guess some canting is

You must be right :-)
The green trefoil is indeed a representation of a "main" leaf of the
hop plant. The smaller leaves are found just below the flowers.
Therefore, what is shown on the flag is a very elegant representation
of a hop plant. - "chmel" has its origin in the Latin name given
to the plant, "humulus".
