Nitra flag submitted through Rob Raeside, 26 July 1999

Nitra is 100 km east of Bratislava with c. 90.000 inhabitants. Nitra castle existed already in the third decade of the 9th century as the seat of the Pribina princes. The first Christian church on Slovakian soil was in the castle precincts. In 1025 Nitra became the seat of the crown prince of Hungary. It was granted town privileges in 1248. In the 16th and 17th it suffered greatly from constant attacks by the Turks.
