Dobré Pole is a village with 410 inhabitants in Breclav district, South Moravian region in the Czech Republic. Its flag is on this webpage, and I've made a gif with the flowery heart from the Coat of Arms at the Dobré Pole homepage. It seems that there was some Croatian presence...

To answer your question regarding the Croatian connection to Dobré Pole. The answer is yes.
Dobré Pole (Cr, Dobro Polje) along with the neighboring villages Hrvatski Frielištof (called Jevišovka in Czech), and Nova Prerava were the three remaining Croatian villages in southern Moravia. The Croats who moved there, fled the Ottoman Turks in the 16th century, and are classified as Burgenland Croatians (Gradišcanski Hrvati) along with the Croatians that moved to
Austria, Slovakia, and Western Hungary. The Moravian Croatians remained in their villages until 1948 when the Communists removed them and dispered them throughout Moravia for collaboration with the Nazis. You can read more about Croatians in Moravia here. An article about Moravian Croats in Czech can be found here.
