This one is canting, since "Hat" and "had" ("snake") are pronounced
identically in Czech.

Mr. L.A. Nowitz was right about Hať flag (district Opava), although
I thought he's wrong! "Hať" and "Had" are pronounced a little different,
but the oldest name of the community was "HAT" without diacrtical sign
and the snake was in the seal. The net or bars is also reference to the
name. "Hať" is a causeway of timber or fascine through swamps, also
known as corduroy road.
