ca. 110 thousand inhabitants, one of the oldest towns in Poland; it appeared
as a trading post around the year 150 and was noted by the Roman geographer
Ptolemy. German name: Kalisch.

On this page is the strange looking flag after description and sketch
by Pascal Vagnat. However at this
webspage is a flag which looks a wee bit different: the chessboard
is not 7x7 but 6x7, and the top swallowtail is red. The coat of arms in the canton
is different too (but nearly invisible). The one I found on the web is
used for this redrawing:.
