Two flags, of Slovakia and of the European Union, are set to be displayed in the parliamentary chamber in future, Speaker of Parliament Pavol Hrušovský (Christian Democratic Movement (KDH)) said on Wednesday, March 28, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

The decision came after newly elected Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) MP Alojz Hlina proposed that the Slovak flag be placed in the chamber at least for the swearing-in ceremony for new MPs on April 4. In a letter addressed to the outgoing parliamentary chair, Hlina pointed to the fact that Slovakia is one of the few countries without a flag in its parliamentary chamber. Hrušovský responded that once the architect in charge of the chamber has approved the move, the country's flag can be placed there permanently.
