Czech Republic Flag

When Czechs, Slovaks, and Ruthenians united in 1918 to form Czechoslovakia, a simple bicolour of white over red stripes was used as a national flag. This was considered inadequate, however. Though it included the national colours of the Czechs, the flag contained no symbolism for the other ethnic groups of the country. Moreover, a white-red flag was being used by the neighbouring country of Poland as its national flag.

In 1920 various designs were submitted for consideration as a new flag. The winning proposal incorporated a blue triangle at the hoist of the existing flag. Since the Slovak colours were red, white, and blue and the Ruthenian colours were blue and yellow, this gave symbolic reference to those parts of the nation.
