Flag of Slovakia

Flag of Slovakia

The Slovak flag is composed of Pan-Slavic tricolor of white, blue and red color. From 1918 to 1993, there was a common state of Czechs and Slovaks, so the current Slovak flag has not been adopted until the disintegration of Czechoslovakia. Double cross erected on three hills, which is located closer to the side left side of the flag, indicates the beginnings of Christianity in the area of Carpathians. The emblem has been a symbol of Slovaks for a long time, but the tricolor has not been adopted until 1848 when many Slavic nations took inspiration from Russia as the only independent Slavic during the fights for independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
