Głogówek old flag

GLOGOWEK town and commune - PRUDNIK County - OPOLSKIE Voivodship
Old German name: OBERGLOGAU; Older German name: KLEINE GLOGAU; Even Older German name: KRAUT GLOGAU and the very Old Czech name: HORNY GLOGOV and even Older Polish name: GORNY GLOGOW

This webpage says roughly:
"There is evidence Glogowek had the flag not so long ago. It was even manufactured - the red/green flag. It was criticized for the lack of golden color from the Coat of Arms."
The commune and town authorities are trying to get approval for the flag they selected with the proper heraldic and vexilollogical
advice - three horizontal bands - red, green - to reflect grapevines and winemaking, and yellow"

The second article (May 1998) mentions the flags of Glogowek and its sister city of Rietberg in Germany, being raised during some ceremonies.
I am just assuming they've got the approval sought for their 1997 flag.

This more recent webpage mentions the flags of Glogowek and its sister city of Rietberg in Germany, being raised during some ceremonies. I am just assuming they've got the approval sought for their 1997 flag.

At the Glogowek site I found  two pictures with flags:
- probably Rietberg (Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany) vertical RY with the Coat of Arms in the center
- the Glogowek delegation with a vertical VR with the Coat of Arms in the center.
Here is the vertical flag of Glogowek (OTOH this may just have been made for the occasion...)
