The Slovakia flag was officially adopted on September 1, 1992.
Red, white and blue are traditional Pan-Slavic colors. The centered Slovakian arms features a dominant white cross atop a blue symbolic reference to the country's mountains.
Slovakia's coat of arms is a red shield containing a silver double cross standing on a blue three-peaked mountain. The cross symbolizes the Christian faith of the country, while the blue mountain represents the Tatra, Fatra and Matra ranges
