Prešov region flag

According to site of Prešovsky samosrpravny kraj the flag of it already exists. It reminds me of older flag of Podlaskie Voivodship in Poland, only difference is the ratio between stripes. I do not know the date of adoption.

...and it's identical to the flag of Pulawy, Poland:

Prešov region president's flag

[president's flag] by Pascal Gross, 29 Oct 2002
adopted 19 Aug 2002

Regional Website for the Prešov Self-Governing Region of Slovakia has a link to the regional symbols. They have a coat-of-arms (erb), seal (pečať) and presidential color and standard (Reťaz predsedu). A flag has not yet been adopted but from what I could tell there's a competition that wraps up 30 August 2002. This was found on the homepage of the website (toward the bottom) and click on "Viac informácií" (See information).
Details of the symbols is here.

1. The title is "predseda" = president, chairman etc.;
2. the flag competition deadline is 30 August (but only citizens of the Prešov Region are allowed to apply);
3. the flag should be 2:3 and its colors should be derived from the Coat of Arms.
