[Horné Mýto flag] by István Molnár, 13 Mar 2001

Horné Mýto - Hungarian name: Felsővámos. The flag: horizontal divided into 9 parts. VYVWWWVYV. Of course with swallowtails /typical village flag. Ratio: 2:3
History in English: Name of the municipality of "Wamus" is included in the list of collector of papal tithe in 1268. Name of the municipality is deduced from a Hungarian name meaning 'tollbooth' ("vámos hely"- in Hungarian). On 23 February 1683 the municipality was attacked by three hundred Turks, who robbed the village, set it on fire and 104 people who were not able to shelter were abducted to bondage. The noble Pálffy family became owner of this village and of its serfs. The municipality had 790 Hungarian speaking inhabitants in 1938 and it had 2012 cadastral jutters (1 jutter = 1,42 acres) of fields. Horné Mýto and Trhová Hradská were consolidated between 1960 and 1990 to one municipality called Trhové Mýto.
