Jičín city flag

This districtseat-flag was in a paper "Prapory okresních Měst České Republiky", by Petr Exner, published by Flag Data Centre, Hradec Králové, 2002.
I assume that this is an attempt to get flags for all okres-capitals and that some liberties have been taken.

Jičín (German: Gitschin) was founded 1302 by King Wenceslas II. It is a market center, c. 70 km NE of Prague with c. 20.000 inhabitants.

The flag of Jicin was not discussed nor approved by the parliamentary subcommittee - and cannot be as it violates the vexillographic rules ("not include complete COA!").
However, it is probably in use although it was  not granted by the chairman of the Parliament.

In Jičín town I saw flag without Arms on City Hall: that means flag in Town Livery colours - White over Blue is in Use. I am not sure about shade of blue. It was neither celestial blue not cobalt blue. Just blue.
