Flag Day is celebrated in Russia

142
The 25 time in the Russian Federation is officially celebrated as the State Flag Day. The date is set in August 1994 year on the basis of the decree of the then President of Russia Boris Yeltsin. And this statement is connected with the decision of 1991 of the year in relation to turning the three-color banner into the state symbol of the new Russia.


Flag Day is celebrated in Russia


Disputes about why the red-blue-white flag was chosen as the state flag in 1991 (approved in 1993) - against the backdrop of the collapse of the Soviet Union - have not ceased in society. There is also a version that it was proposed to return the black-yellow-white flag - the official symbol of the Russian Empire in the period from 1858 to 1896. However, if you trust the voiced version, the new authorities listened to the opinion of foreign "partners" who stated that "it is better to use a flag that is less associated with the empire." In addition, it was noted that if the black-yellow-white flag had a truly administrative character (hung out at state institutions), then the red-blue-white flag was primarily “commercial and public”.

On that and decided.

For over 28 years, the red-blue-white flag has been a state symbol of the Russian Federation, but when it comes to discussing this symbol, not all compatriots (especially the older generation) speak exclusively of it in positive tones. One of the reasons is that the appearance of a new flag (even if it has already been slightly modified over the 28 years mentioned) in our country is associated with the collapse of the once united country, with the name of Boris Yeltsin. And this name is additionally associated with economic turmoil, the war in Chechnya, the riot of the oligarchy, listening to American advisers, strange behavior, etc.

Nevertheless, the tricolor flag is a state symbol, and no matter how many Russians belong to it, the flag has gained respect for the 28 years of the new Russia. It was under this flag that numerous Russian victories in sports were forged, it was on this flag that Russian enemies persecuted, trying to accuse our athletes of doping and prohibiting the use of state symbols, it was under this flag that Crimea and Sevastopol, on the basis of the will of the people, were forever returned to Russia, it was this flag that visited the bottom of the Arctic Ocean under the point of the pole - as a sign of its belonging to the Russian shelf.

And in the end, the matter is not so much in the flag itself as in people who are ready to glorify it with their labor, perseverance and talent - for the good of the Fatherland.

    I don’t want to say anything, write bad, but this version directly scratches the body - the "partners" advised it turns out, - you trade, the rest is none of your business ... You are not an empire anymore ...
    As well as the law on the State Bank of Russia, an excerpt from which was given earlier at the HE, on the impossibility of lending to state enterprises ...
    Wah-a-b-shche !!! And the deputies do not know this or it is not profitable to rewrite, correct these "partner" postscripts ?!

      As a matter of fact, the attitude of the authorities to the country itself can be described as an attitude to the commercial and public platform, which nobody needs to see the image of a strong state. This is evidenced by a toothless policy, because of which each mongrel strives to lift his hind paw on our country knowing that they will not kick, as well as the priority of trade over the image of the country, state, in the external arena. The campaign took into account all the wishes of the partners.

    I don't understand this holiday. If, as they constantly talk on this day, "people should know the heraldic symbols of their country," then the Day of the National Anthem and the Day of the National Emblem must also be approved. No, but what? And then make all these days a weekend.
    Py.Sy. For any 30 years of the existence of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the victories, sports labor and military, were forged much more than under the current tricolor (they even stole the word from the French).
    Py.Py.Sy. IMHO, the phrase
    it was this flag that visited the bottom of the Arctic Ocean under the pole point
    sounds very strange. How could he be UNDER a pole point? Scratching my head.

        The flag should be raised, not lowered, the fleet has a command "Raise the flag!" And there is another good example - the raising of the USSR flag on the Reichstag of the defeated Berlin, the capital of the Third Reich.

    new authorities heeded the opinion of foreign "partners"
    Not surprising, since at that time they were in a hurry and readiness to fulfill the "advice" of the most capitalist and democratic. Without pretensions to the new flag (after all, 28 years have passed already), which really won respect at the international level, but the Soviet, red was and remains more preferable for me personally.

    The Soviet flag was a symbol not so much of the country of Russia as a symbol of the ideology imposed at that time. Sickle and hammer on the flag meant the union of the peasantry and workers. All this went away with the Soviet regime. You can’t go back in time. When an adult fat man on the Defender of the Fatherland Day tries to put on his tunic, which he served as 18-year-old, it looks ridiculous and stupid. The history of the tricolor is no less rich than the history of the flag of the USSR. And no less heroic.

      Yes, he has no history. Before the arrival of Kolya, number two went into battle under other flags and beat Frederick and Napoleon, and in Russian-Turkish. And the tricolor was marked by a defeat in the Russian-Japanese one, in the war of 1914 ... Well, Kolchak the hanger was noted.

        The modern tricolor was known at the time of Alexei Mikhailovich, and under Peter it was hoisted over the ships of the Azov Flotilla. The trade flag, and since 1896 - the national flag of Russia. So his three hundred year history is richer in every way than that of the flag of the USSR. Yes, there were defeats under him, there were victories. It was the banner of the tricolor that our ancestors stained in the Great War of 1914-1918. The fact that short-sighted leaders turned out to be driving the country does not change the meaning of the flag. There is a controversial issue about Kolchak, there was a lot of truth behind him. And the flag that he chose had nothing to do with it, since it existed long before him. Now, if he invented it, and we adopted it, then there would be something to talk about. And in general, the destruction of the Russian peasantry by Lenin and Stalin, the repressions of the 30s were carried out under the red banner. Here the flag of the USSR is definitely enriched with blood ... of its own people.

          This is the starting point for the "national flag". Our state is gone, the flag is gone, and the new state has established a tricolor, so let the "national flag" be so, because you cannot invent a new flag for Russia. And the Red Flag will remain in our memory forever, like the flag of the Revolution and the Flag of Victory.

        Unfortunately there is. Shitty, but there is. Under this flag, General Vlasov's "army" fought, which was beaten off by the Red Army. What would happen if those of our fighters knew that this flag would become our state flag.
        I was in Moscow in the autumn of 90. It was remembered that near the historical museum personalities with red-blue-white bandages on their sleeves scurried. Now I understand that these are those who were preparing a coup in 91 years. And they succeeded.

          ROA did not fight with the Red Army. The Nazis did not give, they were afraid that they would run back. If not for the terrible conditions of detention of Soviet prisoners of war in German camps, there would have been no ROA. People trite saved their lives. And not for us to judge them, resting on the sofas with beer. They can be judged only by those who went through that hell and did not break. But it is unlikely that there are such commentators and minus signers here.

        Yes, for heaven’s sake, it will not decrease from me, and you will not increase. But in essence I repeat - the Soviet flag could not be returned, since that flag was not national, but had an ideological character. It signified the union of workers and peasants in the struggle for the offensive of communism. Agree, in the current capitalist RF, this would not be appropriate. The same as the International in the form of a hymn. And the last historical national flag of Russia is just a white-blue-red tricolor.

          Under the red banners, the squads of princes Oleg and Svyatoslav went into battle, and even then, the color of the prince's cloaks (the orientation of the soldiers in battle) was red. And the tricolor flag of the Russian Federation, this is the imitation of Peter the Great by its Western counterparts, nothing more.

        Not everything was heroic and unambiguous at the time when the Red Banner fluttered over the Kremlin. Yes, the Reichstag was defeated, but there were also peasants starved in hunger and scurvy in Narym, tens of thousands of former white officers and soldiers shot in Crimea, hundreds of thousands shot on false charges during the years of great terror. Ambiguous methods forged people's happiness.

          So after all, they shot at the case, if you do not uproot - you immediately climb on the ridge of a Russian peasant. Which, in fact, happened 28 years ago.
          Life means their traitors saved? It's not for us to judge them, nurse. But what about tens of thousands of Red Army men, red officers, commissars who spit in the face of occupants and accepting, sometimes fierce, death in captivity for the Soviet Motherland?

            Who is this us? I am a native Russian, Siberian in the fifth generation. And who are you? He remembered about the peasant. They shot him in the case ... you probably didn’t catch those people who survived those times and told how they turned around the policeman in the next street so that he wouldn’t catch his eye. As a father, the uncle was sent to Narym, and the son was hiding in the neighbors. For what? Because he quarreled with the chairman of the village council because of the woman, and he wrote a denunciation. Or maybe just like that, the surname did not like. Families in the taiga, were sentenced to death, with children, old people .. they too - for the cause? Before the war, under your beloved red banner, all the men of arms, laborers and families were brought to the root, and here you breed (I would call you what I should, but I don’t want to go to the bathhouse) my rotten philosophy .. for the cause, supposedly ... pah ..

              Something you overexcited you Siberian. You go over to personality, insulting a stranger, an old person and a person who has seen it.
              However, I will answer.
              I’m the great-grandson of one of the commanders of the Antonov’s army in the Tambov region, leaning against the wall of the CHONAW small petty Bonapartik Tukhachevsky, the great-grandson of the Tver peasant exiled for serving in the police of the city of Tver, exactly before VOSR. I wanted to buy a vishka cow, for a large family of almost all girls. The grandson of the fighter pilot of the Red-Soviet Army, this is the son of a shot-gunner Antonov ataman, who at night, after terrible batches in the sky of the Kuban, was dragged for interrogation by a special officer for a trifling reason. He was shot down, went out to his own. And were they not captured? The woman was not divided. I'm sorry for mine too, no less than you
              Bastards, convicted by the authorities, mistakes and excesses in any formation will be. This evil is inevitable. Only nagging is not appropriate here. Civil war is a terrible thing. Either we are a white bastard trying to save slavery, or vice versa. It’s known from history that we are. They shook off the ridge, who by birth was somehow considered better than everyone else. This distortion, in human society, has been eradicated with an iron hand.
              Give the deadline and the current burials will be brought to justice.
              PS And what are you so boasting that Siberian? I am a Muscovite in the third generation, but Siberia is not a stranger either. For two years he pulled a soldier-sezhantsky strap in the SA, KSIBVO in this fertile land.

Re-read (I turn to you, as with an elderly person) still your comment, and you will see who was the first to cross the line that separates simple communication from hitting a person. They drove - they got it. And it was rash to write this "shot for the cause" on your part. You yourself know that it is not always for the cause, even very often - not for the cause. And at the expense of the civil war, which will write off everything ... so it ended in 1922 (in Siberia, we have in 1920). And the people were muffled for a good ten years, right up to the Great Patriotic War. After dispossession of kulaks, thousands of villages actually ceased to exist, or began to fade away, since there was no master on earth. So about whose peasant ridge did you say? Oh, come on .... you’re probably really outside the Moscow Ring Road and you don’t know what to discuss with you.

                  But I, in fact, have nothing to talk with you about. The tale of millions of innocent ruined people had heard enough from the drawer. Only in adolescence and youth he received enough information from the primary sources and is not inclined to believe bourgeois nonsense. I clearly indicated my position. The civil war did not end in 1922, it continues to this day, as long as there is a class stratification of society. Cold for now.

    My attitude to the current Russian tricolor is, at best, neutral! On the one hand ... this is the national flag of the state in which I live, of which I am a citizen ... And on the other hand, this is the flag under which the Union was destroyed, the "white house" was shot, the "miracle in feathers" EBN was brought to power ! The country was robbed under this flag! Black-yellow-white flag? By the way, in the solemn "decoration" this flag was called "black-gold-silver" ... If my memory serves me, this ChZhB-flag is connected by its origin with Germany! And this served as the fact that he was abandoned twice ... first in 1896 and then in the early 90s ...

      I’ll answer you this way. Under the USSR flag, I was born, studied, served, worked. Well, that is, the best years of my life passed under this flag (childhood, youth, early mature years). And now? Well now, tricolor is the flag of my country. Attitude? How to the flag of my country (respectful). But the USSR flag is closer to me.

      This is a personal matter and therefore I think that I am not "obliged" to answer this question. The flag of the USSR occupies a special place in the life, in the memory of people born in the USSR, who have lived in the Union a significant part of their lives ... often the best part of their lives ... life in human dignity, in national pride, pride in their country ... The flag of the USSR is a symbol of the once great country! But the Russian tricolor is also a flag (symbol) of the country in which I live, of which I am a citizen. And therefore, I believe that I am obliged, like all citizens of the Russian Federation, to treat the tricolor as required by law and not allow anyone to mock the Russian flag.

    For Crimea, the soaring flags of the Russian Federation was a holiday. Tricolors soared over private houses, buildings, hung from balconies, inserts on license plates were placed. Flags either rose or flickered above the administrative buildings (officials were openly cowardly).
    But now, many tricolor with pleasure update over their homes.

    not all compatriots (especially the older generation) speak about him exclusively in positive tones. One of the reasons is that the appearance of a new flag (even if it has already been slightly modified over the 28 years mentioned) in our country is associated with the collapse of the once united country, with the name of Boris Yeltsin.

    This flag is primarily associated with the ROA of Vlasov traitors. It was under such a flag that they fought with the Red Army of our fathers and grandfathers.
    And the very name "tricolor"? There is no such Russian word "color". In Ukraine, this can be a zhovo-blakit two-color, while LGBT people have a seven-color one.
    Let's call the Russian flag the Russian word: a three-color flag.

            Victories of Suvorov, Kutuzov

            The flag consists of three horizontal stripes: black, yellow (gold) and white. The first official interpretation of flag colors dates from the Decree of Emperor Alexander II of June 11, 1858 [15]:
            “Description of the Highest Approved Arrangement of the Emblem Flowers of the Empire on Banners, Flags and Other Items Used for Decorations in Occasion.” The arrangement of these flowers is horizontal, the upper stripe is black, the middle is yellow (or gold), and the bottom is white (or silver). The first stripes correspond to a black state eagle in a yellow field, and a cockade of these two colors was founded by Emperor Paul I, while banners and other ornaments of these flowers were used already during the reign of Empress Anna Ioannovna. The lower strip is white or silver corresponds to the cockade of Peter the Great and Empress Catherine II; Emperor Alexander I, after the capture of Paris in 1814, combined the regular coat of arms with the ancient Peter the Great, which corresponds to the white or silver horseman (St. George) in the Moscow coat of arms ”[16]. (Wikipedia)

            The last flag of the Russian Empire. White-blue-red with a black double-headed eagle on a gold field in the upper left corner, representing the embodiment of the slogan "The Unity of the Tsar with the People." It was created on the initiative of Sovereign Emperor Nicholas II during the First World War in 1914. The following excerpt from the journal "Annals of the War" 1914-15. describes this event: “The holiness of the soul of our people in this difficult time is accompanied by its complete merging and unification with the thoughts and feelings of the Sovereign Emperor. The Tsar with His loyal people, in the Russian national flag at the staff between the white and blue stripes (a quarter of the total size of each) will forever flaunt the Imperial Standard (a yellow square with a black, Russian coat of arms). This is the Great Tsar's grace to the entire Russian people. "

      In fact, the official flag that the ROA, that CONR (to which the ROA obeyed) was the St. Andrew flag. Tri-color was also used, but unofficially, Hitler's direct ban on its official use. Read, if interested in the topic, the memoirs of Shtrik-Shtrikfeldt (in my opinion - the most authoritative source on the activities of the ROA).

    The ambiguous attitude towards the state flag of the Russian Federation, in my opinion, is associated with the collapse of the USSR and the destruction of all its social gains in the "holy" 90s. The wildest privatization, the change in public morality and the tragedy of millions of Russians who "did not fit" into the market will now always be associated with the tricolor.

              So the external enemy controlled this whole process. And it was obvious to clever officers. Unfortunately, the proletarian-revolutionary self-consciousness inherent in the officer corps of the USSR back in the 50s was not even mentioned in the 90s. The political-culturalists blabbed the idea. It was clear, after all, that the formation was changing, i.e. encroachment on the SOVIET Homeland. Whoever understood, he defended the last bastion of socialism - the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, only without the support of the army could anything come of it. And the Office, it seems, was head over heels in a coup.

                  You are an intelligent man, Boris. Why did you bring this hardened record of our huckster scrapers? Well, what does Ukraine have to do with it?
                  The fact is that the Soviet, workers and peasants in essence and composition, the Army did not defend the legitimate and legitimate Soviet power, in the person of the Supreme Council, but complied with the usurper’s order.
                  It taught me a lot, to paraphrase you. When the soldiers in the "Lenin's room" fell asleep to the tedious muttering of the political officer, when even the communists raised their hands without delving into the essence of the issue. They chatted up the Idea, dissolved it in applause turning into a standing ovation. As a result, we got tanks on direct fire at the Supreme State Power, Soviet, mind you, power. The power of workers and peasants.
                  I was led to the idea that this confrontation did not stop even for a second, although it seems like the world and the Soviet people, relatives, their people
                  And at that moment there was still not that Russia which you see investing in your answer. Nothing - would not fall apart, stand and win, would the people's power. Enough - one Cantemation regiment. They would move traitors from the helm and, taking lessons, would modernize Socialism and the USSR. There were capable people at that time. Most of them are no longer alive.

      Well, no matter how the crystal bakers don’t understand - the Russian peasant who threw off the centuries-old yoke of the burials of nobles, merchants and other evil spirits and who became truly free from all husks that had been tricked for centuries, didn’t give a damn about your dismantling of the lords under the Dutch merchant flag.
      Only in the USSR, a guy from a remote village could become a diplomat, a world-famous scientist, marshal of the Soviet Union. A society of equal people and equal opportunities. There would be talent and perseverance. And don’t tell me that it wasn’t. I lived at that time and watched a play from the first row. Nomenclature especially did not have a damn compared to all the others. So, the solder is sweeter, but the hut is more spacious. He was visiting the secretary of the district committee, not the smallest, of the Moscow region. Not impressed.
      When my grandfather, a war veteran, saw at the Victory Parade that the White Guard loomed behind the Red Banner of Victory, the Vlasov tricolor spat and swore for a long time. I seriously feared his blow was enough, there were 91 old people.
