ⓘ Banner o the Czech Republic

The naitional banner o the Czech Republic is the same as the banner o the umwhile Czechoslovakie. Upon the dissolution o Czechoslovakie the Czech Republic kept the Czechoslovak banner while the Slovak Republic adoptit its awn banner. The first banner o Czechoslovakie wis based on the airms, an wis white ower reid. This wis identical tae the Banner o Poland, sae a blue triangle wis addit at the hoist. The banner wis banned bi the Nazis in 1939, an a horizontal tricolor o white, red, an blue wis enforced. The oreeginal banner wis restored in 1945.

When the Czech an Slovak Republics separatit in 1993, the Czechs adoptit a banner identical tae the umwhile banner o the Czech an Slovak Federal Republic, in direct violation o the constitutional act that explicitly forbids umwhile federal seembols tae be uised bi the twa successor states.
