Wouldn’t you like to know some interesting facts about former communist countries?
Let’s talk about the Czech Republic which doesn’t really have any significant meaning to traditional Bohemian colors.
The colors used now were chosen as something that the citizens would recognize as they were taken from several coats of arms.
Prior to the separation of the Czech Republic and Slovakia there was an agreement that Slovakia would not use any symbols of Czechoslovakia.
On 17 December 1992 the Czech Republic violated the agreement by adopting the former Czechoslovakia flag. However the Czech Republic said they were not bound by the agreement since the country that made the pact no longer existed.
The flag had a white stripe on top and a red one on the bottom. These are equal in size. There is a blue triangle with its base on the hoist side and the apex pointing to the fly side.
The Czech Republic joined the U.N. in 1994 and became a member of the European Union in 2004. Troops of the Soviet Union stayed until the Velvet Revolution of 4 November 1989 to 29 December 1989 which was a non-violent revolution. The Czech Republic and Slovakia separated officially on 1 January 1993.
