I have official confirmation of the usage of a flag of the Polish voivodship of Opolskie. On the 28th September, 2004 the design of the artist Michala Marciniaka - Kozuchowski was accepted by the General Voivodship Assembly of Opolskie.
Here are the officially used symbols.
The symbols were adopted by the law nr. XXIV/209/2004 of the Voivodship Assembly (Sejm) .

Does the coat of arms predate 1945?
Santiago Dotor, 2 Sep 2005

No district (Landkreis) in Upper and Lower Silesia had flags. Very few districts (Landkreise) had a coat of arms. (for instance Landkreis Glatz).
One can find more info in the books by Erwin Guenther [gue03] and [gue04].

Adam Kromer reported on a flag proposal of  Vojvodship Opolskie. On this flag are two equal broad horizontal strips in the colours yellow and blue arranged.

Andrzej Kupski from Belchatow (Poland) pointed this out.
On the page http://miasta.gazeta.pl/opole/1,35086,2188366.html you find information about the proposal of the flag of voivodship of Opolskie. Unfortunately, the text is in Polish language.
