The national flag of Slovenia is a tricolor consisting of white band at the top, blue at the center and red at the bottom. A coat of arms is between central and top band. On the coat of arms there is Alp mountain with rivers and Adriatic sea.
Yellow stars on a blue background fragment of the coat of arms of the count’s family von Zilli and the city of Celje. Goals in the middle ages was the center of an independent region with a Slavic population; independence is held due to the influence of the count’s family, which was related to the European monarchs.
The colors on the flag are pan-Slavic. They appeared on the flags of the Slavs in the 13th century. Peter the Great in 1699 personally executed a sketch of the tricolor, which then became the flag of Russian merchant ships. During the struggle of the Slavic peoples against the Turkish enslavement, the Slavic Congress was held, at which it was unanimously decided to take the Russian tricolor as a model for the banners of the liberation movement. Even then, in the middle of the 19th century, the Slovenes fought under the flag, exactly repeating the Russian. It was not a national flag, as there was no independent Slavic state.
