A short history of S(z)alka's flag (SK-NZ)
The first version contained the colors of the coat of arms: red-yellow-blue
The people said that they didn't want these colors because these were the colors of the Romanian flag
The leaders changed the yellow to white.
The people said that they didn't want these colors because these colors were Slovakian colors.
The leaders changed the blue to green and thought they wouldn't be good colors because these colors were the Hungarian national colours.
So they changed the red to green and made flags from silk.
The people asked where the red was because this green-white-green flag related to the Fradi (Ferencváros TC or FTC, Hungarian football club). They said they didn't want this flag without red.
The last version of the flag contains red. But these flags aren't made from silk.

Salka, in Hungarian Szalka or Ipolyszalka, has 1.133 inhabitants (96% Hungarian; 1990 census). The settlement was in the Szob district of Hont county of Hungary till 1919/1920. 1920-1938 Czechoslovakian. 1938-1944 Hungarian. Reallocated to Czechoslovakia 1945/1947. Ipolyszalka is the Hungarian version of the name of the settlement since 1908. The official Hungarian version from 1994 is Szalka (the mayor said they would like the name Ipolyszalka, but they had to use only Szalka)
