For some reason when the Czech Republic was formed they gave no meaning to the colors on their flag. They claimed they just used colors from various coats of arms.
Before the separation of the Czech Republic and Slovakia the two parties agreed not to use any symbols of Czechoslovakia.
However the Czech Republic adopted the flag of Czechoslovakia. Their reasoning was that the country that made that agreement no longer existed so they were not bound by the agreement.
The flag was officially adopted on 17 December 1992. Some say that this is the best you can come up with the meanings for colors.
o White – stands for peace and honesty
o Red – hardiness and bravery
o Blue- vigilance, truth, loyalty, justice and perserverence
The republic joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004. Troops of the Soviet Union stayed until the Velvet Revolution which was a non violent that threw out the Communist government on 29 December 1989. The Czech and Slovakian governments completed the break on 1 January 1993.
Despite the fact that the flag of the Czech Republic may not have been adopted fairly it is still vital that this flag be treated with great respect.
It should never touch the ground, when displayed with the flags of other nations they must all be flown at the same height.
There are also rules about how any flag should be disposed of. If a check flag is torn, faded or tattered it should be burned in private.
Although in the US Boy Scouts and service organizations hold special ceremonies for burning old flags.
