Arms and flag adopted on April 29, 2003 (resolution # V/51/03).
"Arms: on the light blue shield a Polish heraldic device known as: "póltrzecia krzyza" = (two and half armed cross) on a green triple hill.
Flag: the flag is in colors: blue-yellow-blue, uneven bands and the Arms on the widest, yellow band, as shown in the proof addendum to the resolution."

An 'E' cross eh: we had an 'F' cross recently and does this, in your
opinion, come under the same heading? Are there any more of this
general type in the pipeline, and/or are there any more (that you know
of) which I cannot remember already on fotw?

What you call 'F' cross is on this page
(among others). The so-called 'E' cross is fairly common.
In my opinion both of these crosses belong to the same category. There is a website, which describes both of them in one paragraph (#61 and # 62) as the heraldic device signifying the conversion from paganism to Christianity and the fight to defend the faith.
I believe we will encounter more of these crosses soon, although not too many of them appear on flags but pop out here and there in the Coat of Armśs of the communes.
