I send two proposals of the county flag of Sulecin County in the voivodship of Lubuskie. Sulencin have the former German name "Zielenzig".
The County Council decided on a white flag with coat of arms of Sulecin
County. The Polish Heraldic Commission had turned down the proposal and
recommended a light blue field in the middle of white cloth. The County
rejected the idea of the commission and applied for the authorization of
the completely white flag with CoA to the Department of Interior. A decision
departement was not yet been taken as yet.
The white color of the flag had her origin in the city flag of the Sulecin
Town. Also the coat of arms combined coat of arms of Sulecin Town (the
lamb) and the CoA of the historic region of Wielkopolskie (the eagle).

Sulecin is the seat of Sulecin county, Lubuskie vojvodship; a photo
of the flag is at this
website - a white bedsheet with the CoA in the center; on the flag
the shield color is blue, while the CoA on that webpage has a black background.
The German name was Zielenzig; Ralf Hartemink's explanation:
"The arms show a Paschal Lamb (Agnus Dei), the symbol of St. John. The city was a possession of the Knights of St. John from 1350-1810. The municipality uses the arms both with and without the green ground in the base of the shield.

It's a white lamb on a black shield on a white bedsheet. The lighting
on the photo must have been off...
