The Law ("Statut") shows in the addendum a flag with some fancy geometry, different from wiki (which is rather plain, uninteresting).
I am discouraged from asking for clarification.
Out of 24 inquiries sent since we started these series, I've got only 3 answers.
I was trying to be as polite as possible and used my best Polish in writing, but the prevailing response is a boorish "don't bother us" and no answers.
