Żukowice flag

ZUKOWICE Commune - GLOGOW County - DOLNOSLASKIE Voivodship
Old German name: Herrndorf. Even older German name: Herrindorf (1299)
It is possible that the village bore also Czech, Hungarian and Austrian names, and who knows, maybe even Wendish or Sorbian names long before anybody else.
On the website which is gone already ( I've got it from the local copy of <>, cached) there is a Paragraph # 2 of the Statute of the Commune, dated December 31, 2000 describing rhe Arms and Flag of the Żukowice Commune.
Here is the brief summary of it:
ARMS: Top of the shield (header) - Red Frisian Arcade. Field of the shield - gold. On it, Red Fortress with two towers topped with Red Banners facing opposite directions. The Gate of the Fortress - open, without the door and with the gold interior.
FLAG: Horizontal rectangle  5:8 with two horizontal bands of equal width 1:1. Upper: RED; Lower: GOLD
This site shows the full Coat of Arms of Żukowice with the two strange beasts supporting it as it is very heavy with the gorgeous Frisian Arcade on the top of the shield.
Here is the site where I've got the info on the flag.
