The "Civic Initiative Czechia" (Občanská iniciativa Česko / Czechia) was formed in Brno in October 1997 as a platform to help spread, insitutionalize and practically adopt Czechia, the geographic one-word name of the Czech Republic, that has been ignored by Czech official institutions, contrary to directions of the Czech foreign ministry in its memorandum (1993). Another reason for the founding of CIC was the fear, that the name Čechy (Bohemia) should be adopted as a synonym of the name Česká republika (Czech Republic), which was an imminent danger at that time. The main arguments of the civic initiative consist in geographical, etymological, linguistic and historical evidence of correctness and necessity in the common usage of the name Czechia, as a standard equivalent to the conventional name of the country.
