Arago: Flag of Czechoslovakia

Flag of Czechoslovakia

The flag of Czechoslovakia in red, white, and blue is featured on the second stamp in the Overrun Countries Series, issued on July 12, 1943. Czechoslovakia had a large number of 'Sudeten' Germans who became pawns in Hitler's grand design. Under the Munich Agreement of 1938, large portions of Czechoslovakia were ceded to Germany, Hungary, and Poland. Continued resistance by the Czechs led to occupation by Germany in 1939.
