Chojnice commune flag

This is the flag of the rural commune of Chojnice, based on Flaga 11.
Gunnar Staack, 20 Oct 2001

Rural Municipality (Gmina) of Chojnice:
The flag is divided into three equal horizontal stripes in the colors green- yellow-blue.
Quotation: "The three colors <of the CoA> in a form of horizontal equally wide stripes were used in the flag of the commune of Chojnice. From top to bottom: green - gold - blue. Since the Middle Ages several provinces and cities have used their flags. A flag which did not directly represent concrete persons, but the territory, unites all inhabitants in a special way with local values; one identifies with the values and the territory. When used vertically it should be used as the national flag, from left to right: green - gold - blue."

A curious web site, offering information in Polish, German, and *Croatian*. Any clue why those choices?
Al Kirsch, 20 Jun 2002

No idea. I checked several encyclopedias and lexicons, but I don't find anything about Chojnice. I was hopeing that possibly small Croatian community might be living there, but if so, I guess some Croatian encyclopedias would mention it... So, I guess, the webmaster speaks Croatian so he decided to show that :-)

I think Zeljko's guess is right. In addition, Chojnice are establishing close ties to the Croatian city of Beli Manastir (Osjecko-Baranjska Zupanija) including cultural and scholarly exchanges so far and negotiating an agreement between mayors of both cities regarding their participation in the Sister Cities program.

I have regiffed Gunnar Staack's image, using the colors of the website: darkgreen - yellow - blue.
