There is an erroneous vertical hanging flag of this town near Olomouce
in eastern Czechya on this
site. Its Coat of Arms is here.

The flag is horizontal, with the central diagonal running from bottom
left to top right.

On this site
is another (erroneous) flag. From the description I gather that the blue
diagonal line stands for the river Bečva, which flows through Hranice in
a broad bent. On the flag I sent previously the Bečva flowed from NW to
SW (which is a fact in the eastern part of the town - on this one from
NE to SW (which is the case in Western Hranice). This image is a mirror
image of the previously reported one... The yellow color stands for Moravia
and red for the hilly countryside.
Hranice (or in German: Mährisch Weisskirchen) was previously a Bezirkshauptmannschaft (district capital?).

Petr Exner, in Vexilologicky Lexikon prapori obci CR (1991-1994), has
a flag with a much thinner blue diagonal stripe.

The correct ratio of diagonal stripes of the flag of Hranice (CZ) is
(red-yellow-blue-yellow-red) 4:3:1:3:4. Source - Petr Exner.
