The wavy-bladed dagger on this flag looks very much like a Malay kris, although somewhat smaller in size. Obviously the connection between Czechia and the Malay world is very remote if it exists at all, but it is interesting to see the coincidence.

It is drawn like this to symbolize a flaming sword. There are one or two other Czech local flags (like of Blatno (Louny), and Citonice (Znojmo) with a flaming sword. Wasn't there an angel guarding the gates to Paradise with a flaming sword?

St Michael, I think.

Indeed.  See also Kyiv/Kiyiv/Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.
