The flag of Slovakia includes this coat of arms, which now can also be found on some 2 euro coins. It consists of a red shield, with a silver double cross standing on the the middle field of a mountain consisting of three peaks. This double cross is commonly referred to as a Patriarchal cross. Similar to the familiar Latin cross, the patriarchal cross possesses a smaller crossbar placed above the main one so that both crossbars are near the top. It is the common form of the cross used in Byzantine Christianity.
