Dissolution of Czechoslovakia
Upon the dissolution of Czechoslovakia the Czech Republic kept the Czechoslovak flag while the Slovak Republic adopted its own flag. Before the separation of Slovakia and the Czech Republic, a resolution was passed by the Czechoslovakian government which stated neither of the two new states could continue to use any emblems of Czechoslovakia. After they separated, Slovakia adopted a white/blue/red flag with a coat of arms on it. The new Czech Republic adopted the flag of former Czechoslovakia which was a violation of the resolution. This upset Slovakia but the Czechs basically said that the country which made the resolution didn’t exist anymore and refused to change the flag.
The meaning of the flag
The flag reflects the state, and the reason why the white color was put the first is to represent that peace reigns in their country. The people also believe that conversing is the way to stop chaos instead of challenging each other’s bravery, so they placed red towards the bottom. According to psychological interpretations regarding triangle, the three sides is to see the meaning of the form and edges. So this means, a blue triangle tells an importance that the people should be vigilant, loyal and true, determined and fair.
The flag was banned by the Nazis in 1939, and a horizontal tricolor of white, red, and blue was enforced. The original flag was restored in 1945.
Despite the fact that Czech Republic flag 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.
