Flag of the Czech Republic (GIF)


The national flag of the Czech Republic consists of two equal horizontal white and red bands with a blue isosceles triangle based on the hoist side. The white and red colors are traditional colors of the Czech territory. A blue color was added to the hoist side to distinguish it from the Polish flag. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on March 30, 1920.

Its coat of arms shows the three historical regions that make up the country: a white lion representing Bohemia in the first and fourth quarters, a red-and-white checkered eagle representing Moravia in the second quarter, and a black eagle representing Silesia in the third quarter.

The Czech Republic flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
The Czech Republic, also known as Czechia, is a landlocked country in Central Europe. Its capital is Prague, and its population is about 10,638,000.
