Flag of Slovenia

Flag of Slovenia

The Slovenian flag consists of three horizontal stripes in Pan-Slavic colors (white, blue, and red). On the left side of the flag on the border between the white and the red stripe, the Slovenian coat of arms depicting the highest peak Triglav covered with snow is placed together with three six-pointed stars taken from the armor of the family Celje who had a great influence in the 14th and 15th century. Two wavy lines at the bottom of the emblem represent the Slovenian lakes and rivers. The flag was adopted after the breakup of Yugoslavia in 1991, but the crest has not been added until 1993. Originally, the flag bore a "Yugoslav" star from the federal flag. The tricolor was adopted following the example of Russia as an expression of independence of Slavic nations.
