Che³m: horizontal white-green with the coat of arms in the middle of
the white stripe.

On this webpage is
a beautiful photo of the mayor in front of the hanging flag of Che³m, in
Lubelskie 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. Che³m is the main town of Che³m
county, 60 km east of Lub³in, with 70.000 inhabitants.

Che³m 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 Che³m 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".
