Paszowice rural district flag

Paszowice - rural commune, Jawor County, Dolnośląskie Voivodship - former German name: Poischwitz.
Commune Council's resolution (uchwala) # VI/40/2003 dated March 28, 2003, says:
"Arms of the Paszowice Commune are in the form of the knight's shield, divided into three fields and showing the image of Princess Agnes (Agnieszka) standing upright with two ornamental Coat of Armśs on both sides of her.
The Princess dons the coif on her head, wears a long gown under equally long coat, adorned at the shoulders with the large balls.
The Princess stands on the console and holds in her hands a trefoil.
On her right is a Coat of Arms with the Silesian eagle, on her left the checkerboard of Glogow.
The rest of the Coat of Arms suggests a courtain of lillies.
The colors of the commune are green and gold."

The flag of Paszowice is a bit different than the one reported previously. According to the page about symbols at the municipal website, the flag is indeed green and gold but not divided horizontally.
It is a gold pile on green in ratio 1:2. A vertical banner is also shown on the page above.

The earlier version of the commune's website didn't elaborate on the shape of the flag, stating only laconically: "the colors of the commune are: green and gold".

Agnes of Bohemia (1205-'82) was the daughter of King Ottokar of Bohemia. She was engaged to Boleslaus when she was three (3!), and when he died, to Henry, son of Emperor Fred II, when she was nine. She was overjoyed when Henry married the daughter of the Duke of Austria, as she had offered herself to God and hoped to live a life of austerity and virginity. Her brother affianced her to Fred, and when in 1235 Fred sent for her she petitioned Pope Gregory IX to intercede for her; when he did, Fred released her from the engagement. In 1236 she built a convent for the Friars Minor in Prague, and Agnes took the veil there. She was named abbes soon after and became renowned for her humility, aid to the poor, and her dedication to poverty. She died in Prague on March 2.
