In 1918 the Slovenes joined the Serbs and Croats in forming a new nation, renamed Yugoslavia in 1929. After World War II, Slovenia became a republic of the renewed Yugoslavia, which though communist, distanced itself from Moscow's rule. Dissatisfied with the exercise of power of the majority Serbs, the Slovenes succeeded in establishing their independence in 1991.
The colours are pan-Slavic and are based on the Russian tri-colour, but with the addition of the shield of arms. The shield contains a silhouette of Triglav, the highest mountain in the Slovene Alps. The three yellow stars on a blue field are from the arms of the former duchy of Celje. The wavy lines represent the rivers of Slovenia and the Adriatic Sea. There have been rumours that an attempt was made to change the configuration of the flag to distinguish it from the Russian flag.Contact us to purchase
