One new Czech city flag: the city of Orlova has flag divided vertically into three stripes, blue, black, and white (9:2:9). In the blue field, there is half of a yellow eagle with red beak and legs; in the white field, there is a red tree. Flag ratio 2:3. (City decree, 2000.)

If you thought you've seen this eagle before, you're correct. It was taken from Karvina flag because the drawing was very similar. Many Czech flags do not use the exact image of their respective CoA's, but a more stylized image. Image is based on BW drawing, sent by Ale¹ Køí¾an, 22 Dec 2000.

The CoA is per pale, sinister per fess (1) Dimidiated Tì¹in eagle (a canting element, "Orel" = eagle); (2) eradicated oak gules in argent); (3) Sable minertools argent.
