I have made an improved version of the flag of Ostroleka made using
the CoA available at this
website. The flag on this page doesn't bear the name of city which
is better vexillologically speaking, so I haven't put the name on my version.

Ostrołęka is on the Narew river, 100 km NNE of Warsaw with (1981) 39,621
inhabitants. Several battles were fought here. It is in Ostrołęka county.

The vertical flag can be seen on the city-page,
alongside the Polish vertical flag. I've used the CoA at this
webpage for this image.

Ostrołęka: horizontal green-yellow-blue.

The arms are known since 1781 and show the Polish eagle, with on its
breast a shield with the letters HAEC AVIS PROTEGE
(this bird will protect), and in the lower half a bear, the original symbol of the city.
