Lord mayor (of Kladno) Mgr. Milan Volf recieved on August 14 2001 in
State Acts Hall of the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Parliament the
FLAG OF THE CITY OF KLADNO from hands of Chamber Chairman Mr.Václav Klaus.
Two vertical (equal) stripes - blue and white. In the blue field there is a demidiated white eagle with yellow beak and claw, red tongue and yellow crescent with trefoil on the breast. In the white field there is a (natural) lynx rampant, touching the margin of the stripe with its hand . In the chief of flag there are white mining tools bound together with a yellow ribbon Ratio is 2 : 3.
It is (in fact) not stristly an armorial baner, becauce the Coat of Arms has blue background. This is a compromise between historical flag and above mentioned Armorial banner. The former flag has the shield placed into the middle of bi-colour field (white over blue).
