Central Bohemia - the eagle symbolizes the medieval Premyslid ruling
dynasty and, consequently, the fact that the original Bohemian state was
founded in central Bohemia (in or near to what is now Prague). The two
wavy stripes represent the major rivers of the region, the Vltava ('Moldau')
and the Labe ('Elbe').

This proposal is official, it was made for new established regional
parliament (elections were in November 2000). May be, this flag will be
pass in next session of parliament of Středočeský region (in March ?).
Decision about flag and coat of arms of region is competence of regional parliaments.
May be, in next months will be passed flags of another new regions.

The Regional Assembly of Central Bohemia has approved the proposals
for the regional symbols. The coat of arms (and flag) is red - silver/white quartered,
the 1st and 4th fields are red with Bohemian lions, the 2nd field is silver/white
with black St. Wenceslas eagle, and the 3rd is silver/white with two blue
wavy stripes. Note - only proposal so far!
