Kraków city flag with arms

[Kraków flag + Coat of Arms] by Jarig Bakker, 13 Dec 2002

At this webpage are images and despcriptions of the new symbols of Krakow, the birthplace of the great anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski. The city flag is the same as at <pl-mp-kr.html>
New: the city-banner: Scottish flag with Kraków's arms.
According to Luc Baronian: horizontal white over blue, with coat of arms centered. Flag adopted: 1815. - I've tried to get a decent image using the Coat of Arms on Ralf Hartemink's website (the old Coat of Arms, as depicted too in Louda's European Civic Coats of Arms).
It's not quite clear to me when the new symbols were introduced...
