I guess the flag is canting, as "loď"="ship" in Czech (and Russian?) — see also the flag of Lodenice, Czech Republic.

In Russian it’s either "lodka | лодка" or "karabl’ | карабль".

Yes, you are right. Lodeynoe Pole (capital of the county) = "field of ancient ships". It was great shipyard in Peter I times.
