National flag of the Czech Republic. Adopted in 1993.

This flag was originally adopted in 1920 as the flag of Czechoslovakia. The country was created out of territory that had been part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and consisted of what is now Czech Republic, Slovakia, and a few Hungarian, Polish, and Ukrainian cities.

Czechoslovakia was divided between Germany, Hungary, and Poland in 1939, with Slovakia becoming an independent republic and a member of the Tripartite Pact. In 1946, the Soviet Union reconstituted Czechoslovakia as a Communist run Federation, but annexed a piece of its original territory to the SSR of Ukraine.

Communism fell in 1990, and the Czech Republic and Slovakia split in 1992. Czech Republic was officially independent on New Year's Day of 1993.

The colors of the flag are taken from the Pan-Slavic colors adopted at the Pan-Slavic Conference of 1848 in Prague.

3'x5' flags are 3ft x 5ft, 36in. by 60in, 91cm by 152cm, 1yard by 1.7yard. This is the most common size flag you see hanging on porches, small flag poles, hanging at festivals, and inside of bars and restaurants.
