Question: what's the gadget to the hoist? It's also on the flag of Kornatice, in Rokycany district.
Jarig Bakker, 21 Jun 2002

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 (Plze˛) vicinity.
