Hlince municipality flag

[Hlince flag] by Jarig Bakker, 21 Jun 2002

The village of Hlince in Plzen sever district (north Plzen) received its flag and CoA on 25 Feb 2002 and prides with both of them on its website.
Question: what's the gadget to the hoist? It's also on the flag of Kornatice, in Rokycany district.

That's a 'korbel', which is part of the wheel with two spokes left. This heraldic device dates back to at least 1368 in the Pilsen
region. It appeared on the seal of Jan a Precha, Lord of Kornatice, in 1418. Since that it was incorporated into arms of Kornatice and Hlince, all in the Pilsen (Plzen) vicinity.
