The Czech Republic flag consists of two equal horizontal stripes. The top half is white, and the bottom half is red. Lying on these stripes on the hoist (left) side of the flag is a blue triangle pointing toward the middle of the flag.
The Czech flag was adopted after the independence of Czechoslovakia in 1918. A committee in charge of creating the national symbols of the country chose a flag designed by Jaroslav Kursa, who was an archivist (maintains and in charge of archives), in the Czech Home Affairs Department.
It’s known that the flag of the Czech Republic represents the state. The first stripe is white which represents peach that dominates the country and the honesty of the people. The red stripe was placed purposely on the bottom meaning good communication is the way to stop chaos rather than challenging each other’s bravery, as well as courage, valor and patriotism of the nation. The blue triangle symbolizes the three different sides of the country, and the people of the Czech Republic and their vigilance, loyalty and perseverance.
The Czech flag was officially adopted in March 1920. On January 1, 1993 upon dissolution of Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic kept the Czechoslovak flag. There was a resolution before the dissolution that stated neither of the new states will use former Czechoslovakia emblems, but the Czech Republic did in fact adopt the old flag. This was a rude violation of the resolution. Slovakia was not pleased, but the Czechs said the resolution was made by the country that didn’t exist anymore and therefore kept the flag.
At the beginning of World War II, the Czech flag was banned, but after the war it was revived again in 1945.
