The flag war granted in 1995 and the decree is from 1996. So, the material I saw, was a little different. The word description of the flag basically suits to both picture. But, because Olomouc has a decree, the new picture is accurate.

The Flag of the Town is a blue field with chequy Eagle displayed Argent and Gules, crowned and membered Or, langued Gules, taking the half of the lenght of the field, in the centre of field. Near the flagpole are yellow "maiuscule" letters S and Q, in the fly similar letters P and O, placed one below the other. Ratio of the field is 2:3 (Public notice Nr.25/1996 - The City Statute, Article Nr. 6) - It is a banner of arms. I can confirm it, as I saw it above the main entrance to the City Hall.
