All of our printed Slovakia flags are made by a process called Dye Sublimation. This process impregnates the fibres of the fabric, the result is a flag that has very accurate colour, and importantly the design appears clearly on both sides of the flag. This is known as ‘printed through to reverse’ and is an important consideration when choosing your flag as both sides will be seen when flying.
Our flags are manufactured to the highest standards. We offer flags in a choice of two materials, Hand Made National Flags, and Digitally Printed National Flags

The lands constituting Slovakia today were territories of Hungary and came under the Flag of Austria-Hungary.
It remained this way until the end of World War I and the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. US President Woodrow Wilson’s post-war demands saw the independence of Austro-Hungarian states.
Consequently, the state of Czechoslovakia was born. They created a new flag, which is still used by the Czech Republic today.
Following the Munich Agreement in 1938 Nazi Germany annexed the Sudetenland and dismantled Czechoslovakia. The country was divided into two states: the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, and the Slovak Republic.
After the war, the state of Czechoslovakia was reestablished along with its old flag. However, it fell into Soviet orbit and would not reclaim democratic independence until the Velvet Revolution.
In the 1990s problems between the Czechs and the Slovaks were resolved with independence for the new state of Slovakia.
In 1992 the current Coat of Arms was added to the flag because without it the flag is identical to the modern Russian flag.
