From the similarity with Croatian the town name "Kozle" might have meaning
"a young goat". That might be the origin of the goats in the COA.

Kędzierzyn-KoĽle: in Kędzierzyn-KoĽle county in the Opolan region, founded
in 13th century but remained a village until 1951. ca. 71.000 inhabitants.
Zeljko Helmer is correct in deriving the KoĽle part from the word of 'a
young goat'; this is an adjective originally denoting a village of shepherds.
German name: Kosel/Kandrzin.

A weird 3:8 ratio -- this is quite unusual among Polish flags, isn't

Yes, but the original image was far from being authoritative (it was
one of those "artistic" drawings for the web based on the flag or the COA),
so the flag ratio or even the flag, period, may be totally wrong.
