People's Party Our Slovakia (Ľudová strana Naše Slovensko) was founded by reorganization of the tiny Party of Friends of Wine (Strana priateľov vína), which was founded in 2000 and inactive since 2006 due to serious financial problems. In 2009, the members of Slovak Solidarity, ultra-rightist political association which had been registered as a party in 2005, but banned as such in 2006, joined the Party of Friends of Wine, effectively taking it over and renaming into the People's Party of Social Solidarity (Ľudová strana sociálnej solidarity). In 2010, the party was renamed again into the People's Party Our Slovakia , the name it is still usually called by, although in late 2015, it was officially renamed into the Kotleba - People's Party Our Slovakia (Kotleba - Ľudová strana Naše Slovensko), expanding its name with that of its leader Marian Kotleba (previously also the leader of Slovak Solidarity).
Party flag is derived from that of the Slovak Solidarity, but the field is green instead of blue. It is charged with the party emblem, green disk with white double cross within a green ring with white edges, which is charged with the party name in white. The shade of green varies from medium to very dark, the flags displaying different shades often being used together, which suggests that the shade is either not officially prescribed or the prescription, if it exists, is not strictly followed.
