Gołańcz flag

Here is the flag of Gołańcz commune, in Wągrowiec county, Wielkopolskie vojvodship, as presented in "Insygnia, Symbole i Herby Polskie, 2003".
Flagdescription: yellow with the arms in tophoist.
Coat of Arms at this website: azure an opened castle with gates or, containing the words or "PORTA PATENS ESTO" (my Latin is a bit rusty...)

From this interesting site: Double-meaning sentences::
"PORTA PATENS ESTO NULLI CLAUDARIS HONESTO"
This sentence carved on the gate of an early Cistercian gatehouse means
"Gate, be thou open - never closed to honest man", but also
"Gate, be thou open never - closed to honest man"!
Obviously, the motto on the flag means simply: "Gate, be thou open."
