Image after Petr Exner's Vexilologický Lexikon prapory obcí Čr (1999) - Hrabová, Šumperk district, Olomouc region - adopted 4 Jun 1998 - the yellow items are fruits of the hornbeam.
Jarig Bakker, 14 Feb 2004

The fruit of the common hornbeam (Carpinus betulus L.) is a small nut surrounded by a trilobate involucra (the three leaflets), which helps the dispersal of the fruit by wind. The same kind of 'winged' fruit is found in maples.
