The flag of the commune of Katrineholm is white: I've seen several square versions with logo (coat of arms with name) and a rectangular version with coat of arms only, but maybe the wind hid the lower part with the logo.
Katrineholm has 21.000 inhabitants and is located in Södermänland county.
On Ralf Hartemink's site, you can read :
The arms were granted in 1918 and registered in 1974. The arms were created for the Town of Katrineholm. The cross symbolise the junction of the main railways on their way to Stockholm, the other charges symbolise trade (the staff of Mercury), industry (the hammer) and gardening (the rose).
