Kłecko flag

Here is the extremely complicated flag of Kłecko city and commune, Gniezno county in Wielkopolskie vojvodship. It is presented at the municipal website, adopted 22 April 2003; old German name: Kletzko.

Flagdescription: white field, in center the municipal arms.
Arms: azure a hunting horn or hanging from a crown gules lined argent.

The crown looks like an Austro-Hungarian arch-ducal bonnet or coronet (or possibly the coronet of a Prince of the Holy Roman Empire), would there be a historical link to such a title?
Christopher Southworth, 7 Mar 2008

Yes, indeed.
The coronet comes from the Coat of Arms of the Radziwill clan, very prominent in the history of Poland and Lithuania. Since 1515 the Radziwill family were elevated to Reichsfürsten of the Holy Roman Empire. In modern times, they are known due to their family's connection to the Kennedy clan (Princess Lee Radziwill) and to my family as well (which is not so well known or publicized fact).
