Judging by the shape of the cross AND the language, it's definitely, without a doubt, "Czechoslovakian".
(Note that the Czech and the Slovak languages are NOT one and the same, and so it's inaccurate to use the term "Czechoslovakian". But at the time -
1963 - the country was, of course, still Czechoslovakia. And, unless I am very much mistaken, the Czech language had "official" precedence over
Slovakian. As for Slovenia, it's not even in the neighbourhood... but it's a fair mistake.
The inscription means - duh!
- "Jubilee of St. Cyril and Methodius". (According to tradition, they brought Christianity to many of the Slav
tribes. This was - you guessed it - in 863. Hence the "jubilee" part.)
