Opava City, following the description above. Exner's old website had the coat of arms inside a yellow, ornamented frame similar to Andorra's. Most probably this flag is no longer officially accepted and some BoA may have already been designed.

Opava city wards

Petr Exner has stated on Czech Vexillological Pages that three wards (mestske casti) of Opava City allready have their symbols. I know only two of them.
Opava City is since 1.1.2002 a City with own statute (Statutární mesto Opava). Territory of the City is divided into 8 City districts (mestských cástí, sg. mestská cást) called:
  • Komárov <>

  • Malé Hoštice <>
    Milostovice  <>
    Podvihov  <>
    Suché Lazce  <>
    Vávrovice  <>
    Vlaštovicky  <>
    Zlatníky  <>
Rest of the territory is administred directly by City administration consists of these "quarters":
    Opava - Mesto (Opava - /Inner/ City)
    Opava - Predmestí (Opava - Suburb)
    Katerinky u Opavy
Opava City Districts are entitled to fly their own flag and to bear arms. Some of them are doing it already (as far I know): Malé Hoštice and Vávrovice, Komárov, Milostovice, Podvihov.
