Or, a Carp Gules in bend.

Blazon by Mühlemann (1991): In Gold ein schrägrechts gestellter roter Karpfen.

Translated: Or an oblique statant gules carp.
Jarig Bakker, 19 June 2000.

Though unfortunately this must be the design in use in local flags, this carp is an ichthyological aberration: all details are wrong! Mühlemann (1991) shows a much better depiction.
