Pardubický kraj flag

The coat of arms of the Pardubice Region ('kraj') of the Czech Republic should be quartered, with two Czech lions, one Pardubice's half horse, and still uncertain symbol of the region (Kuneticka hora mountain, Kralicky Sneznik mountain, Sternberg arms?). The flag should include red, blue and white stripes and the coat of arms. The 4-member committee has been established by the Regional Council to make the definite proposal.

According to Petr Exner, four regional coats of arms (and banners of arms) were discussed and supported by the parliamentary heraldic-vexillological subcommittee. They are Karlovy Vary, Pardubice, Zlin, and Olomouc Regions. At present, it is not clear whether regional symbols will be approved all at once or step-by-step.

Description of the first four flags of the regions of the Czech Republic that have bee approved by the parliamentary heraldic-vexillological subcommittee. Note that they are still proposals (as they have not yet been officially declared by the chairman of the House of Representatives) and that some details are not clear (some regions sent to the subcommittee only the proposed coats of arms and their 'translation' to the armorial banners is not always unequivocal).
Pardubice Region (Pardubicky kraj): The flag is quartered. The upper hoist field is red with a white double-tailed lion with yellow crown, tongue, and claws. The upper fly field is blue with a red-white checkered eagle with yellow crown, beak, and legs. The lower hoist field is blue with a white ashlar wall with three "teeth" and with a gate (within the gate, there is a yellow globe, the gate's voussoir with a black lyre). The lower fly field is red with a fore half of the white jumping horse with yellow hoofs and bridle. Ratio 2:3. .

There is one problem: it is not certain that the wall should touch the vertical (and the lower?) limits of the blue field. Alternatively, this might be blue field with a white "tower" including the gate.

According to recent message from Petr Exner, the chairman of the House of Representatives of the Parliament of the Czech Republic has approved (June 27, 2001, decree No. 87) symbols of the Karlovy Vary Region ("Karlovarsky kraj"), Pardubice Region ("Pardubicky kraj"), and Olomouc Region ("Olomoucky kraj"). Their coats of arms are the same as in Czech Vexillological Pages; some details of their flags have to be defined because the "translation" of coat of arms into flag is not unequivocal (Karlovy Vary Region - number of peaks of the wavy stripes, Pardubice Region - width of the wall).
Nevertheless, there are three regional flags within the Czech Republic, not proposals.
Jan Zrzavy, 10 Jul 2001

Today the speaker of the House of Representatives of the Parliament of the Czech Republic delivers coats of arms and flags to first three regions (Karlovy Vary Region, Pardubice Region, Olomouc region).
Jan Zrzavy, 14 Aug 2001

A minor comment to Pardubice Region coat of arms and flag: the official image of the coat of arms includes *four* battlement 'teeth'. I believe the number is not incidental (as the region consists of four districts) and also the flag should include four teeth, instead of three.
Jan Zrzavy, 22 Nov 2001

The official image of the coat of arms of the Pardubice Region (Czech Republic) shows that the half-horse is silver/white with golden/yellow hoofs (the previous versions displayed silver/white hoofs).
