Squishta and the Czech flag

The Czech Republic is a European nation. It was created in 1993 when the former Czechoslovakia peacefully dissolved into two separate countries (the other being Slovakia). The Czech Republic retained the Czechoslovakian flag and the Czech language.

While the dissolution of Czechoslovakia went into effect on January 1, 1993, Episode 3061 of Sesame Street (airing January 25 but taped earlier) featured Squishta, a worm identified as from Czechoslovakia (and parading under the Czech flag).

The capital city, Prague, has often been used as a filming location, including for the Creature Shop-effects film The Adventures of Pinocchio.
