the same name, Wielkopolskie vojvodship. It is presented at the communal

Yes there is, in fact there are two established vexillological ways
to describe such a flag recorded in the Dictionary of Vexillology.
The one I prefer is "south-north diagonal" (with the reverse being a "north-south
diagonal"), and the alternative is an "enhanced bend sinister" (with the
reverse being a "bend sinister"). The latter were established by
Znamierowski, but the reason that I prefer the former is that these last
(to my mind) distort the heraldic terms slightly.
