Čelechovice municipality flagImage after Petr Exner's Vexilologický Lexikon prapory obcí ČR (2002); - Čelechovice, Prerov district, Olomouc region - adopted 13 Nov 2002 - it's a lily, not a tulip from Amsterdam.
The municipality of Čelechovice spreads out over mildly undulating loess uplands on the border of the Haná region and the last projections of the Oderské vrchy heights between Přerov and Olomouc. The village is in the form of an estate and is at a level of 240 m above sea level. The entire area is 217 hectares.
The first written mention is from the year 1190, when Čelechovice was in the tenancy of the Olomouc chapter. The title is taken from the family name Čelech, with the suffix -ovice. Until 1960 the community was part of the county of Olomouc and since 1961 has been in the county of Přerov. Until 1979 it had its own local authority. In 1980 it was incorporated into the common administration in Kokory. After the communal elections in 1990 it again became an independent community.
