Deserving of the Name - Hyphen War - Netflix

The Hyphen war (Czech: Pomlčková válka, Slovak: Pomlčková vojna, lit. 'Dash War') was the tongue-in-cheek name given to the conflict over what to call Czechoslovakia after the fall of the Communist government.

Deserving of the Name - Background - Netflix

The official name of the country during the last 30 years of Communist rule was “Czechoslovak Socialist Republic” (in Czech and in Slovak Československá socialistická republika, or ČSSR). In December 1989—a month after the Velvet Revolution—President Václav Havel announced that the word “Socialist” would be dropped from the country's official name. Conventional wisdom suggested that it would be known as simply the “Czechoslovak Republic”—its official name from 1920 to 1938 and from 1945 to 1960. However, Slovak politicians felt this diminished Slovakia's equal stature, and demanded that the country's name be spelled with a hyphen (i.e. “Czecho-Slovak Republic”), as it was spelled from Czechoslovak independence in 1918 until 1920, and again in 1938 and 1939. President Havel then changed his proposal to “Republic of Czecho-Slovakia”—a proposal that did not sit well with Czech politicians who saw reminders of the 1938 Munich Agreement, in which Nazi Germany annexed a part of that territory.
