The municipal regulations on its symbols here prescribe the flag to be in the ratio 3:4 (Sorry Tomislav - you will have to make the drawing 8 pixels shorter.)
The municipality wanted to show its moose herds on the arms, but since Namsos alrady had a moose head in their arms - Tynset went with the issuant version for differentiation.
