August 22 - Day of the state flag of the Russian Federation

103

For the first time in modern stories the tricolor Russian flag was raised as a state symbol on August 22, 1991. In this capacity, he came to replace the red banner with the hammer and sickle.


But our tricolor appeared much earlier than the Russian Federation was proclaimed and even than its predecessor, the Soviet Union, was founded. The author of the white-blue-red banner was the Russian emperor Peter I. Back in January 1705, he issued an imperial decree, according to which all civilian seagoing ships were required to raise the tricolor flag. The sovereign personally made a sketch, establishing the arrangement of flowers, which has already become familiar to us. There are many versions of why Peter the Great chose this particular color, but it is not known exactly what meaning the emperor put into one of the main state symbols of the country.

Actually, it was used in Russia even before the imperial decree was issued. Back in 1693, the tricolor, which was then called the "flag of the Tsar of Moscow", was first raised on the yacht "St. Peter". On board, Peter the Great sailed along with a group of warships in the White Sea. It is this panel that is considered the oldest Russian flag. Now it is kept in the Central Naval Museum of St. Petersburg.

There are several interpretations of the colors of the state flag of the Russian Federation. One of them claims that white symbolizes freedom, blue - the patroness of Russia, the Mother of God, and red - statehood. According to another version, white means nobility, blue means honesty, and red means courage.

There are several more versions, but be that as it may, the tricolor is associated with our Motherland - Russia.

And on this solemn day, the editors of Voenniy Obozreniye congratulate all citizens of the Russian Federation who are not indifferent to the fate of their Fatherland, who respect their flag with respect and pride.

Happy holiday, dear Russians!

    Happy holiday, dear Russians!
    Wow! It is also necessary to introduce the Day of the State Emblem of the Russian Federation and the Day of the State Anthem of the Russian Federation. And declare them all non-working. Then we will definitely heal!
    In general, to celebrate the state symbols is some kind of perversion, honestly. Absolutely a sucked holiday. Akin to the so-called. Day of National Unity.

      Happy holiday, dear Russians!
      everything is clear to me ... Under the crossed tricolor and the Andreevsky flag is a framed photograph of the traitor-general Vlasov. On the front side of the obelisk the inscriptions "They know" and "To the participants of the liberation movement of the peoples of Russia 1941-1945" are carved. On the other side there is an inscription: “Russia is ours. The past of Russia is ours. The future of Russia is ours. "

          Historical importance is assigned based on the most recent significant event. I want to remind you that the tricolor fought against the Red in the last two most terrible wars. In WWII and Civil. These were the most destructive wars in the entire history of Russia. And our grandparents, who defended their country, would clearly not be delighted with the tricolor. The return of the tricolor would be associated with a return to the old defeated regime.

          Our country made the best and most grandiose accomplishments under the Red Flag (the tricolor was opposed to it at that time). All military and labor exploits, space, victories in sports, scientific achievements ... the people have never had such dedication and enthusiasm, and the symbol of this is the Red Flag.

            You know, maximalism speaks in you.
            Do you think that the victories in the Northern War, the wars with Turkey, the repulse of the French aggression in 1812 and the overseas campaign of 1813-14, the Balkan War and many other military conflicts during this period were of little significance for Russia?
            Yes, and labor victories were enough, the development of the Black Sea region, Central Asia, the Far East, what was it worth, at the expense of scientific, do you think that Lomonosov, Mendeleev, Zhukovsky can be deleted from our history, since their achievements were under the tricolor?

                  Judging by the size of the GDP of the USSR and tsarist Russia, Soviet construction projects were many times larger and more efficient. The main driving force was the enthusiasm of young people working for the public good, not slave forced labor, as it was in tsarist Russia.

                  There were very few people like Lomonosov. They are exceptions to the general rule of widespread illiteracy. This story is about how not easy it was to get an education in the troubled times of tsarism for an ordinary person. The Soviet education system gave a start in life, without exaggeration, to thousands of outstanding scientists. And made Soviet science the most advanced in the world.

                    At some points the question is VERY controversial. It's no secret that many construction projects from the 20s to the mid-50s were carried out, mostly by the hands of prisoners, consider the same slaves ...

            You, Detkastary, are a real traitor-Vlasovite, trying to turn the Russian people against their own past, to tear them away from their roots and from their history. Today we trample the flag of Peter and St. George's ribbon, symbols with a centuries-old history, and tomorrow, even easier, it will be possible to trample the symbols of the USSR, because their age by historical standards is completely ridiculous and there is much less history behind them than behind the symbols of the Russian Empire. For example, that among the Vlasovites were Heroes of the Soviet Union, and holders of the Orders of Lenin and the Red Banner. So these orders, according to your logic, should be cursed and banned. Monuments to Lenin - to demolish, because orders with his image betrayed the Motherland. Oh, yes: Vlasov was a member of the Communist Party and an exemplary communist. So the Communist Party is also banned, as well as all its symbols: after all, it was the communists, according to your logic, they sold their homeland.

                Tricklolr was accepted as a state only under Kerensky and Yeltsin. Also, under this flag, traitors fought in the Second World War, who, together with the enemies, killed 20 million of our civilians (including my grandfather).

                What our country turned into under this flag (for clarity in pictures):

                Russian empire.


                Russia under Kerensky (tricolor).


                THE USSR.


                Russian Federation (tricolor).


                As long as the rtikolor is state-owned, we are obliged to respect it, but for some reason we don’t want to, nor did it bring anything good to our Motherland. excuse me, there will be no party-dance in my house on this occasion.

And it is YOU, since you support individuals of the oligarchy of the Russian Federation - the faithful successors of Vlasov's ideas and the three-color towel he uses.

                    The traitor Vlasov (since 1918) and others like him fought under the red banner for much, much more time, have you forgotten? Now what?

                  Since the end of the 1301th century, the Greek word "Rosia / Rusia" has been increasingly used in official documents, especially in the diplomatic correspondence of the Moscow grand dukes and tsars. It, as it were, signified the entry into the international community of not one of the Russian states, of which there were several earlier, but the only legitimate Russian state. It is reported by Rambler. For a long time Russia was called in Western Europe not only Ruthenia, but also Rusia. So, the Galician prince Yuri Lvovich (16-1305), who received the title of king from the Pope in XNUMX, was named, judging by the seal, Regis Rusicus. Since Rusia was read by most Europeans as "Ruzia", ​​from some time they began to add a second "c" to it for greater accuracy. From here, the double "s" passed into the official title of the Russian tsars.
                  However, there could be another source. Back in the 42174190th century, in some Russian writings, under the influence of the Greek reading, the ethnonym "Ross" is found.

                  Yes, we became Russia before the Romanovs. Relax and take it for granted, woodcutter.
                  Not a meager 5 million, but as much as 2 million km5,4, but you did not lie, but you did not tell the whole truth, traditionally in the European way.
                  There were offers of citizenship from the mountain and Circassian princes, and Siberian Khanate recognized itself as a tributary of Moscow (1563). Moscow repelled two blows from the Ottoman Empire and the Crimean Khanate. In 1569, the campaign of the Crimean Turkish army to Astrakhan failed. The Ottoman army was almost completely destroyed. In 1572, in the decisive Battle of Molodi, the Crimean Turkish army was defeated, put to flight and destroyed, despite the great numerical superiority. The strategic consequences of these events were colossal. Moscow opened the way through the Volga to the East and South (Caspian Sea). The annexation of Siberia began.
                  That is, everything has already been done, before you, woodcutter.

        Under the crossed tricolor and the Andreevsky flag is a framed photograph of the traitor-general Vlasov.

        In fact, the ROA was full of symbolism. But tying it to the tricolor is at least strange:

        The flag was approved by Peter I in 1720, and the flag is not to blame that the Vlasovites also wore it along with other flags. ROA and the "Russland" division also used the St. Andrew's flag. Well now, and declare it illegal?
        And as battle banners, and on chevrons, the ROA and "Russland" had Andreev's flags. Tricolors remained only in unrealized projects. The only time with a white-blue-red tricolor some anti-partisan battalion came out for a review, and a few days later, in full force, fled to the partisans. The Vlasovites did not like the tricolor. And just for ideological reasons. The overwhelming number of Vlasovites, and almost all of their command staff, are former Red Army men, many of whom fought in civilian war against whites. And the tricolor is one of the most popular White Guard flags, as a result of which it caused rejection among the Vlasovites.

            There is only one photo where these figures are marching under the tricolor. Pskov, June 22, 1943. This is the only recorded case of the use of the white-blue-red flag by the collaborationist militants. Already in November 1943, the soldiers from this photo, having killed the German curators and several especially ideological of their own, went to the partisans with their entire division.
            Let us remember that, say, the saboteurs of "Brandenburg" dressed in the Soviet uniform, the Bandera men wore it. They went to kill with red stars, think!
            And here's another photo fact. The traitor in his real, not masquerade form, wears the Order of the Red Banner. Note: not a drawing depicting an event that never happened, like a false daub with a tricolor at the mausoleum (the fact is easily verified, since the entire parade was filmed and lists of banners thrown to the mausoleum are in the archives), but a photographic fact. So the Soviet orders, according to your logic - down with, as symbols of betrayal and Vlasovism. So?

      You probably have never seen the Dutch flag, if you write such nonsense ...
      Here Serbs can be said that their flag is an inverted Russian ...

    And I will not argue and argue anything, I will tell you my personal opinion. I like our Soviet red flag more, my grandfathers fought under it, and I grew up under it.

    Yes, he did not, but was appointed, given. The difference is however. Become when based on tradition and sovereignty. And under Yeltsin ...... dali. A venal, mercenary flag cannot be the flag of an independent state.
    Historically, it was with the red banner that the Moscow princely squads went to battle. And according to the proletarian tradition, we took over the red flag from the Paris Commune.
    Whatever one may say, there is a red flag everywhere. request

    And why a holiday then? The day when the USSR was destroyed and Gauleiter's neovlas rags hung over the Kremlin.

      Well, the communists at the last congress announced the collapse of the Union, and before that they canceled Article 6 of the Constitution of the USSR ..

        They were never communists. For communists and members of the CPSU are still very different concepts ..

            Well, I hope you don’t consider the nonesh bureaucrats and hucksters hanging around in the church and donating on them - Christians? For being a Christian is much more than baptizing your forehead with domes and wearing a golden cross all over your belly. This means - first of all, to live according to God's commandments .. Exactly the same difference between members of the CPSU and real communists. Well, do not you think for such, say Putin, Shoigu, Sechin and others like them? But they all had a party card ... But they are ordinary opportunists and careerists .. They are unworthy even to wipe the dust off their boots from the real communists of the era of Comrade Stalin ..

      I don't understand anything: there are VO Rules, where
      prohibited l) Use of derogatory language or nicknames in relation to Russia, its symbols and first persons.


      And then, through the commentary, THE State Banner of Russia is insulted.

    "..the arrangement of flowers, which has become familiar to us" ...
    But it was gone!
    Peter dragged everything European to Russia.
    And he brought the tricolor. Flag of hucksters and speculators.
    The Soviet red ylag cannot be confused with anything else. Even the PRC flag is not like that. And how many tricolors are there in the world ?! Including Slovenia and Slovakia .....
    So the red flag, the Red Banner, from which we took the Oath, will forever remain for me the main state symbols and shrines.
    And the tricolor will not become a shrine even for new generations. Other times, now priorities. The goal is loot, the main symbol is the green dollar.

    Under the state flag, people go to new achievements, perform feats, save the flag when the enemy threatens to seize it and outrage the shrine. They are proud of the national flag. This is a part of the country that you shouldn't be ashamed of.

    You, Detkastary, are a real traitor-Vlasovite, trying to turn the Russian people against their own past, to tear them away from their roots and from their history. Today we trample the flag of Peter and St. George's ribbon, symbols with a long history, and tomorrow, even easier, it will be possible to trample the symbols of the USSR ...

    The symbols of the USSR have long been "trampled" by the new masters of the Russian Federation. sad
