Oleśnica rural district flag

Olesnica - rural commune, Olesnica County, Dolnośląskie Voivodship - former German name: Öls - (Oels)
The "Statut" of the Commune gives only the description of the Coat of Arms and doesn't mention the flag, but I managed to find the photo (real "eagle's eye" you may say, or, an avid student of vexillology) of the actual Commune's flag displayed in front of the Commune Council's office with the caption saying it was adopted by the Council's resolution on November 10, 1995.

"The Commune has the Coat of Arms with the image of the black Piast-era Lower Silesian eagle  with the silver, crescent-shaped band across its chest and wings, on the gold field. The eagle, raising into the flight, looks upward toward the silvery crescent moon with the horns pointed upward on the red field and with the Latin silver cross in its middle. The cross is flanked by two, slanted, golden wheat stalks. The tips of the crescent are adorned with two six-pointed golden stars."

The flag is a tricolor horizontal rectangle of red, yellow and green, predominant colors of the Arms.
