Złotoryja rural district flag

Zlotoryja - rural commune, Zlotoryja County, Dolnośląskie Voivodship - former German name: Goldberg.
You have the flag of the urban commune (by Gunnar Staack 2000) with the very interesting note, so, to complete everything, here is the flag of the rural commune encompassing the urban one: "The Arms of the Commune show a princely couple symbolizing Prince Henryk Brodaty ( Henry I the Bearded or Heinrich I der Bärtige) and his wife - Jadwiga Śląska (Hedwig of Andechs - later Saint Hedwig), the parents of Duke Henry II the Pious, who would be killed in 1241 battling the Mongols at Legnica (Liegnitz). Henryk Brodaty was Duke of Lower Silesia from 1201 and from 1232 to his death, Duke of Lesser Poland (Kraków) and thus senior prince of all Poland.
Source: Wikipedia.
The princely couple is shown behind the wall of a fortress, symbolizing the castle in Rokitnica, which was one of their residences.
Below the wall there are five wheat stalks, corresponding to the agricultural traditions of the Commune.
The colors of the Arms are: wall - red, clothes - white and red, wheat stalks - golden (yellow), overall background - green.

The flag is a horizontal tri-band. The upper two bands -  red and yellow - are narrow. The bottom band - green - is double the width of the two upper ones."
