Colours[edit]

Black?? I'm sure white is meant. Can this be changed? --Canuckguy 00:22, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes, of course. White is right. Please fix it. --mj41 07:24, 16 August 2006 (UTC)


"Colours of the Flag are according to the Ministry of foreighn affairs of the Cz. Rep.: Pantone: RED - 032C; Blue - 293C; Black - processed black C" - Moved from article. Can't find source. Flag has white color, not black. --mj41 07:19, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Communist Star?[edit]

Was there a communist star on the flag of Czechoslovakia during communism? How did Czechoslovaks manage to avoid it? - 70.71.155.24 19:59, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

How did Poles? --89.176.54.194 19:55, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
By chance, I guess. There was no consistently followed system in pushing communist symbols into the state insignia of the affected countries. Presumably, the bolsheviks were content with a red star on the coat of arms. -- EJ (talk) 15:03, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

"Same as Polish flag"[edit]

I just want to point out that the Czech flag wasn't "The same as the Polish flag. The white-red bicolour is the flag of Bohemia and can be traced back to the first Czech kings. I just find the formulation strange since we also (after WWI) started using it BEFORE the Poles. So I would say that the Polish flag is the same as the Czech flag. --90.181.34.132 (talk) 14:32, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

With regard to this - the Slovak language page says that the reason for adding the blue triangle was to represent Slovakia and thereby the whole of CS (except Moravia) and it doesn't mention the Polish flag at all. I have no idea which is right but only one of them is. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.237.234.131 (talk) 21:24, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
