Hukvaldy municipality flag

A photo of the flag of Hukvaldy is at this page (with some big images), the bottom of the flag consists of the spikes, as in the coat of arms at the homepage. Hukvaldy is closely associated with the Czech composer Leoš Janáček, who was born here 3 July 1854, hence the lyre on the flag. The flag was adopted 15 Jul 1993.

The fox is a reference to Janáček's opera "Příhody Lišky Bystroušky", the Cunning Little Vixen.
