The flag of Slovakia consists of the Slovak tricolor and the Slovak coat of arms. The tricolor (from top to bottom – three equal horizontal stripes of white, blue and red) is derived from the original Slovak colours – red and white, and the Pan-Slavic tricolor – red, blue, white. Slovakia’s flag in its current form (but with another seal on it or without any seal) can be dated back to the revolutionary year 1848, when a minority of Slovaks where fighting against the Magyars. It was also used semiofficially in Czechoslovakia before World War II, by the Slovak Republic during WWII, and finally adopted (without the seal) on March 1, 1990 as the flag of the Slovak Republic within Czechoslovakia. The seal was added on September 3, 1992 and a special law describing the details of the flag followed in February 1993.
