[Arms of Oelstykke] by António Martins-Tuválkin

The arms are identical to those at (direct link here. No hits for "flag", "vaeben" or "väben" in the web site search engine, so apparently no official large image of the arms.

On to the International Civic Arms site: at is a large image of the arms, not very different from those on the ferreted photo, attributed to Achen (1982) -- which certainly includes a much better blazon than azure nine arrowheads argent four three and two on a chef of the same a herring (?) gules crowned or. (Hmm, would this be the famous red herring? ;-)

Ølstykke is a commune within Frederiksborg district (? -- Amt), in southeastern Denmark.

The photo shows a very dark shade of blue and very thin black lines separating the white chief from the white background. The shield seems to be shifted to the hoist and there is a very light blue stripe along the fly.
