On this webpage is a beautiful photo of the mayor in front of the hanging flag of Che≥m, in Lubeskie vojvodship, southeastern Poland. Pascal did not mention the crown on top of the CoA, but on this site is an image of the coat of arms with crown. Che≥m is the main town of Che≥m county, 60 km east of Lub≥in, with 70.000 inhabitants.

Che≥m is a very famous city in Jewish humor. Apparently there was once a thriving Jewish community there whose famous "Wise Men" were incredibly stupid. For all I know the community was fictional. One joke can give you the flavor: The Wise Men of Che≥m decided to send a spaceship to the sun. When asked whether it would burn up, they replied "Don't worry, we'll send it at night".
