Additional Information: 

When Czechoslovakia dissolved into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the Czech Republic kept the Czechoslovakia flag while Slovakia adopted their own. However, prior to the dissolution a resolution was passed by the Czechoslovakian government that neither state would adopt any emblem of Czechoslovakia. The Czech Republic argued that the resolution was created by a country that did not exist and continued to use the former Czechoslovakia flag. The flag itself holds little meaning but the colors are traditional Bohemian colors and the pattern was selected to produce an easily recognizable flag, especially in battle.
