This flag of the city of Sokolov is obsolete: the new flag is horizontal
green over white, with a light-brown falcon in the center. No shield, no
hills, only the falcon over both horizontal stripes. 'Sokol' means:
falcon. German name: Falkenau.

How "obsolete"? Did the FOTW-version never exist, or did it become an
historical flag? (Any dates?)

The present flag of Sokolov has been accepted in 1992 (7th May). The
plain bicolor (VW) is reported as a historical flag but I don't know how
much official it was.
