The gold coinof the Czech Mint, weighingfive troy ounces, recalls the straightcentury of the Czechoslovak and Czech flags.
Heraldic scenes were hand-embroidered on the banners in the past, but their mass production was demanding. Therefore,the historical battalion of the Czech Kingdomconsisted of two stripes, which symbolized the elements of the state emblem. The silver lion was represented by anupper white stripeand a red shield was represented by alower red stripe. This simple but elegant combination was generally perceived as the Czechnational symbolafter the revolutionary year of 1848, therefore, after the end of the First World War it was reflected inthe first Czechoslovak flag. However,the Polesalso chose the same red and white flag, so it was decided to create a new proposal. From the innumerable variants presented by the stars or the Hussite chalice, a form was finally chosen in1920,where a third in the form of ablue wedgewas added to the original two colors. This representedSlovakia and Subcarpathian Russiaduring the First Republic. Although these countries are no longer part of the Czech Republic, we continue to use the flag, which we all know and which we are proud of.
