According to http://www.gorod.gomel.by/vseogomele/GeraldikaGoroda.aspx (Russian), the flag was adopted on 15 August 2001 as per a city Executive Committee Decision № 919-33. When the city flag is used on a staff, it must be topped with a golden finial, similar to the national flag. The design of the lynx was created by User:Leonid 2 at the Wikimedia Commons and the rest of the coloring/ratio sizing was done by me.
