Velká Chmelištná flag

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 flags 2004.
Description: yellow, a green trefoil (???) with four cones and two smaller leaves. ("chmel" = hop-plant, so I guess some canting is involved).

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".
