Flag of Bohemia
The Flag of Bohemia is a historic flag, which now forms part of the design in the modern flag of the Czech Republic. The flag itself, a horizontal bicolour, was based on the colours of the former monarchs of Bohemia.
Use and history 
The Bohemian flag was used as the flag of the Czechoslovak Republic (ČSFR) as part of the Czech and Slovak Federative Republic (1990 - 1992). The flag was adopted in reaction to the adoption of separate Slovak symbols. In the Czech part of the dualist republic the flag saw much less use than the wider flag of Czechoslovakia. Whereas the flag of Slovakia (then without coat of arms and thus identical to flag of the WWII Slovak Republic) was widely used in Slovak part. This difference mirrored prevailing separatist tendencies in the Slovak Republic and federalist tendencies in the Czech Republic.
The flag currently has no legal status and is practically never seen today in the Czech Republic.
