Vřesina municipality flag

Image after Petr Exner's Vexilologický Lexikon prapory obcí Čr (1998) - Vřesina, Opava district, Moravosilesian region - adopted 4 Jun 1998. The plant is a heather-flower (Czech: vřes). I took the flower from this webpage.
Description (in Czech): Při tvorbě nových obecních symbolů, které navrhl Richard Junker, byl využit název obce. Znak má tedy ve stříbrném štítě zelenou snítku vřesu s jedním červeným květem mezi dvěma poupaty.
Totéž tzv. mluvící znamení nese i bílý list obecního praporu.
Number of inhabitants by 31.12. 2000: 1306. Originally, The village was first mentioned in 1270. This small village of an agrarian character started developed in the 50s and 60th of this century. At those days, many terraced houses were built in the place named na Chabovci. In 1998 new houses were built in the Za školou street.
