CZ - Bukovany Village
The first confirmed notice regarding existence of Bukovany comes of 1304. Anyway, the locality exists, as an independent community, since 1879, when the village was joined together with the other ones, such as Kytlice, Dvory and Katzegiebl.
In 1850, the layers of coal of the best quality were discovered in Katzegiebl, and shortly afterthat, also excavated. Later, even the miners from Bohemia settled there. During the 1st World War, in 1917, when the workers´ class became rather radical, humger demonstration of 498 miners was organized there.

The flag is bordered, along its circumference, with golden fringiness, and added with sash, made from red velvet and text, as follows: „Granted by Parliament of the Czech Republic“.
The escutcheon has again, on green base, a beach-tree in yellow colour shade, and a blade.
