  The Czech flag   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The colors of this emblem became associated with agitation for Czech autonomy in the late nineteenth century when Bohemians and Moravians created a white-over red bicolor.
In 1918 this became the flag of the new Czechoslovak Republic.
In 1920 the color blue was introduced into the Czechoslovak flag to stand for Slovakia - an especially appropriate symbol since the new Slovak arms featured in blue the traditional mountains Tatra, Matra, and Fatra.

 The Czech Republic's national flag   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Owing to reluctance mainly on the Slovak political scene and to the similarity to the national colours of Poland and the Republic of Austria, this original symbol of the Czech Lands was replaced by a new national flag designed by Josef Kursa, who also authored the new Czechoslovak national emblems.
The resistance movement abroad, though, retained the original Czechoslovak national flag, the appearance of which remained the same regardless of any of the future political or constitutional changes that would plague the state of Czechoslovakia in the coming period.
Hence, the Czech Republic brought into use its national flag made up of two equally broad stripes, a lower red one, and an upper white one, with the width:length ratio equal to 2:3.
