Dubňany town flag

[Dubňany municipality flag] by Blas Delgado Ortiz, 26 Jun 2001, after image by Petr Exner; flag adopted 17 May 1994; dub = oak, so the flag is canting, see also the Coat of Arms .

Dubňany has 6 409 inhabitants. It is a town 8 km north of Hodonín. It got its name from oak forests - the forest Doubrava,
which surrounds the town. The first written reference is from 1349. The development and character of the town was influenced by several coal mines supplying the power station in Hodonín.

Dubňany unofficial flag

On this website is a flag with green acorns with brown bases, making them look more natural, it seems.
Jarig Bakker, 29 Aug 2001

According to Petr Exner's Lexicon, the acorns and the branch itself should be brown. Anybody can hand-make anything.

So, let us say that this is a local unofficial version of the flag. Very common in many places.
