Flag Of Slovakia

The Slovak flag shows three horizontal stripes of white, blue and red. On the left side there is a coat of arms with a red background and a white double cross outlined with a white outline. At the base of the cross you can see a symbol of blue, reminiscent of the three hills.

History

In the middle ages the Slovak flag had only two stripes – red and white. After added a blue stripe, but the flag still remained without a coat of arms. After a number of changes, but eventually the image became a symbol of the present Czech Republic (after the collapse of Czechoslovakia).

1990-1992

The current image of the Slovak flag was officially approved in 1992. It was then that it was decided to add a coat of arms to three multi-colored stripes. Before that, the flag looked almost the same as the Russian flag now looks. The coat of arms depicted on the flag is a modified version of the Hungarian coat of arms, which was borrowed from the Hungarians after the war.
