(convertible to .cdr files) is the flag of Tyn nad Vltavou, in Ceske Budejovice
district, Czechia. As explained numerous times by Jan Zrzavy this flag
does not comply with the Czech flaglaws.
Tyn nad Vltavou is one of the oldest settlements in South Bohemia, situated on the banks of the river Vltava, not far from the
confluence of Vltava and Lu¾nice. The town dates from the Xth century with the rise of site of a settlement with merchant community. In the XIIth century a castle was built on the hill above Tyn. It was completely destroyed by numerous attacks of the enemies. Today we can see on its place a roman stone bridge. In the XIIIth Century on the ford a wooden bridge was built, the first in South of Bohemia, and Tyn became an ideal location for the transfer of salt, which was brought to the town on the "Golden way" from the Alp countries. The surrounding area remained the centre of rafting till half of XIXth century.
