I guess "horodok" means "village", like the russian equivalent "gorodok" (and spelled the same way in both languages, actually), so the flag may be indirectly canting if the church protrayed may be percieved as some sort of typical village church.

Literally the "gorodok" (or horodok) is a little town (gorod), not a village.
