Zubří municipality flag

[Zubri municipality flag] by Blas Delgado Ortiz, 23 Aug 2001, after image by Petr Exner. Flag adopted 29 Mar 1995

The similarity with Uri Canton, Switzerland, may be coincidental, but it is surely impressive -- only the ring is missing!
António Martins-Tuválkin, 15 Sep 2001

In these days was community Zubří, district Vsetín, Zlín region promoted to status of a town. (It has population of 5.356). It is well known for its Handball Club with more then 60 years long tradition and for its rubber plant Gumárny Zubří, a.s. (what a name full of invention - it means "Rubber plants Zubří"...) The Arms are canting - "zubr" is a Czech name of an Aurochs. Let's us say, the had belongs to an European Auroch, not to American Buffalo.
