Limited edition

An exceptional edition inspired by an exceptional person.

The special edition PRIM ORLÍK 2020 commemorates a hundred years of the Czechoslovak flag. In its current form, it has been in use since the spring of 1920. Until then the white and red symbol of Bohemia had fulfilled the role, though inadequately, as it had not represented Slovakia as part of the republic, and because two neighbouring countries (Poland and Austria) had also been using those colours. There were dozens of candidates for a new flag, including alterations of the original one using various embedded symbols like a chalice, a lion or an anchor. In the end, the simple and distinct design by Jaroslav Kursa, a draftsman of the state archive gained the most favour. Red and white stripes with a blue wedge. The wedge had reached only to a third of the flag on the original design from 1919, however, it was later extended to reach its half. On 30 April 1920, the design got approved by the National forum as the new official flag.

Interestingly, Jaroslav Kursa was not recognised as the author of the flag for many years as the academic painter Jaroslav Jareš, using Kursa’s absence during the contest, proclaimed the design his own. It was only in 2007 that the Czech vexillological society was able to prove Kursa’s authorship of the Czechoslovak flag.

This edition will be produced in limited quantity of 50 units.
