DAY OF STATE FLAG

The Day of the National Flag of the Russian Federation was established on August 20 1994 of the year by presidential decree and is marked annually on August 22.

The national flag is one of the official symbols of the country. Historically, they consider the white-blue-red flag, which was raised on the first Russian ship "Eagle" during the reign of Alexei Mikhailovich in 1667. The white line meant Freedom, blue - the Mother of God, with Russia as its cover, the red - State power. Now unofficially, the following interpretation of the tricolor values ​​is most often used: white color means peace, purity, integrity; blue - faith and loyalty; the red color symbolizes the strength and blood shed for the Fatherland.


The celebration will continue the next day, August 23. In the park "Red Presnya" "grow" "talking trees", which will tell guests about the history of the main Russian symbol.

Special events are expected in St. Petersburg. In the cultural capital on Palace Square will be held festive events dedicated to the Flag Day and the 150 anniversary of the Western Military District (ZVO). They will begin with a concert, in which the Academic Ensemble of Song and Dance of the Russian Army named after A.V. Alexandrova, as well as the ensemble and military orchestra of the headquarters of the Western Military District and popular artists. On the roads of the Neva a parade line of seven ships will be formed. The events will end with a festive salute over the waters of the Neva.

Do not pass their attention to the Day of the National Flag and political parties. In particular, a rally is scheduled for Friday in Moscow in Novopushkinsky Square, where members, activists and supporters of the Liberal Democratic Party will gather.

In United Russia, special attention was paid to the Crimea. The party promises that this is where the most interesting event will take place. 23 fragments of the Russian flag were sent to all regions of the republic, any citizen had the opportunity to write the wishes of the Crimeans. On Flag Day, all parts will be assembled and stapled into a single flag measuring 108 square meters. According to the coordinator of the youth direction of the Crimean branch of the party, Vladislav Ganzhara, thus, "we want to build a single flag of Russia, which 22 of August will be sewn and hung on the central square of Simferopol".

Russian flag options

In 1693, the tricolor became the personal standard of Tsar Peter I. On January 20, 1705 he issued a decree according to which "on all kinds of merchant ships" they should raise a white-blue-red flag. The three-lane flag was raised on warships until 1712, when on a military navy the St. Andrew flag was affirmed (a white panel with two diagonal stripes of blue color, forming an inclined cross).

Russia celebrates the Day of the National Flag


White-blue-red flag in the XVIII - first half of the XIX centuries. was used not only for commercial courts, but also the designation of territorial claims of the Russian Empire. In particular, it was used by sea expeditions and colonists, for example, in America.

11 June 1858. Emperor Alexander II, according to a report by the head of the herald office of the department of herald Berngard Kene, approved the drawing "with the arrangement of the black and yellow and white colors of the Empire on banners, flags and other items for decorations on the streets for solemn occasions". 1 January 1865 was issued a personal decree of the emperor, in which the colors black, orange (gold) and white are directly called the "state colors of Russia". The black-yellow-white flag was allowed to be used only by state institutions, the townsfolk could hang out white-blue-red flags. 28 On April 1883, the decree of Emperor Alexander III was announced, which said: "In those solemn occasions when it is recognized that the decoration of buildings with flags may be allowed, only the Russian flag was used, consisting of three stripes: upper - white, middle - blue and bottom - red flowers. " However, the black-yellow-white flag was not formally canceled.



11 in May 1896. A special meeting at the Ministry of Justice, convened by Emperor Nicholas II, determined that for the empire the flag should "finally be considered a white-blue-red color, and no other." Also in 1914-1917. there was a "flag for private use": white-blue-red with a black double-headed eagle in a yellow square at the flagpole in the upper corner.

After the abdication of Nicholas II from the throne, the Provisional Government did not approve the new flag and state emblem. 8 on April 1918. Chairman of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee Jacob Sverdlov proposed to approve the combat red flag as the national symbol of the country, the corresponding decree was signed on April 14. The golden letters "RSFSR" (Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic) were stylized as Old Slavonic font. According to the law of the RSFSR from 1954, the flag of the RSFSR was a red cloth with a light blue stripe at the shaft in the entire width. In the upper left corner were the golden sickle and hammer and a five-pointed star above them. The flag of Russia in this form existed until 1991.



18 April 1924 The Presidium of the CEC of the USSR approved the new flag of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: a red cloth with a golden sickle and a hammer with a star in the upper corner at the hoist. Subsequently, the flag of the USSR did not change, except for minor adjustments to the shape of the sickle and hammer.

RETURN OF THE HISTORICAL FLAG

During the events of August 1991 in Moscow, the historic tricolor was raised above the White House. 22 August 1991 The Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR adopted a resolution “On the official recognition and use of the National flag of the RSFSR”. As it was taken a cloth with three horizontal stripes of equal size: white, azure and scarlet. The ratio of the width of the flag to its length was 1: 2. 1 November The 1991 flag was approved by the Congress of People’s Deputies of the RSFSR and survived after the RSFSR was renamed the Russian Federation (Russia). 11 December 1993, Russian President Boris Yeltsin signed a decree "On the State Flag of the Russian Federation". According to him, the azure color of the middle band of the current flag was replaced with blue, and the scarlet color with red. Also changed the ratio of the width of the flag to its length - 2: 3.


25 December 2000, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the constitutional federal law "On the State Flag of the Russian Federation". It says: "The national flag of the Russian Federation is a rectangular panel of three equal horizontal stripes: the top is white, the middle is blue, and the bottom is red."



Where to raise the Russian flag

In accordance with federal law, the state flag of the Russian Federation resides in the office of the President of Russia and is installed in the Presidential Administration, in the conference halls of the Federation Council and the State Duma, the Government, the Constitutional, Supreme and High Courts of the Russian Federation, the Prosecutor General, the Central Bank, the Accounts Chamber, Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation. Also, the flag of Russia is constantly raised on the buildings of federal executive bodies, on the residences of presidential plenipotentiaries in federal districts, diplomatic missions of the Russian Federation abroad and on the buildings of state bodies of the subjects of the Russian Federation. A duplicate of the standard (flag) of the head of state rises above the residence of the President of the Russian Federation in Moscow.

The Russian tricolor rises daily in places of permanent deployment of military units and separate units of the Armed Forces, other troops and military formations, and is also installed during official ceremonies and other special events held by federal government bodies. The national flag can be raised during celebrations held by public associations, enterprises, institutions and organizations.

In the days of mourning at the top of the shaft of the national flag of the Russian Federation, a black ribbon is fastened, the length of which is equal to the length of the flag panel. The tricolor raised on the flagpole lowers to half the flagpole.

In accordance with the amendments made to the federal law 8 in November 2008 and 28 in December 2010, the possibilities of unofficial use of the state flag were expanded: citizens of Russia can post it on their homes on holidays and on weekdays, as well also have the right to use the flag in cars, in sports stands, at the meeting of Olympians, as well as in other cases.

    And what was the flag in Russia before Peter? This bug-eyed destroyed the Russian alphabet, measures of weight and length, calendar. He brought European orders, including this flag. By the way, it is correct to speak three-color Russian, and not tricolor. My father liberated the motherland under the red flag. For me, this tricolor flag is the same as a liberal day of independence from conscience and justice.

      Peter was a very controversial figure. By the way, are you aware that in different provinces the measures of weight and length were different? Kolomenskaya verst, Astrakhan verst, etc. It was necessary to establish order and unification.

        Who is against order? Only in our country it is somehow strange that they impose order, less and less Russian, more and more European. After 50 years, people will beat each other in the face if anyone dares to call them Russian. Since they are Russians.

      Unfortunately, I don't remember literally, but it seems that at the time of his father, some of the European ambassadors wrote to their ruler in a summary that Muscovites pray to the golden woman {they march like the Mother of God}, worship the king and fight under the red flag.

        A colleague, apparently, the flag was still not red, but dark burgundy. Why they say that red as the color of blood I do not understand. But the burgundy is yes. or maybe dark cherry is also yes. Such banners really were with different images. Spas miraculous for example. Therefore, I say that it is necessary to conduct heraldic research ... To find out the colors that were always revered in Russia-Russia ... they dawned on something worthy ... and accept such a flag FOREVER .... And now our state symbols ... this is in fact, the symbols of the top .... so to speak, as the top thinks such and symbols ... over the past 200 years we CHANGED the flag 5 times the anthem 3 times the coat of arms 2 times .... it's not even funny ... it's sad ... These are no longer the characters of the PEOPLE ... this is some kind of garbage ...

            By the way, this flag is very distinctive. Please note that our colors are white-blue-red. But the flag does not parody a whole host of flags of European powers. A bunch of tricolors only the colors are different. Perhaps this flag is the closest to our tradition. And perhaps it is he who should serve as the basis of the REAL FLAG OF RUSSIA. we have nothing to thoughtlessly parody the West. It was a strange position. The flag was "bungled" in European traditions (I mean the tricolor), but the identity of the coat of arms was preserved. I would like that the flag we had was OUR .. proceeding from OUR traditions and cultural understanding.

    I noticed that at rallies and various cult-mass events, young people are all entirely with black-yellow-white flags, and with foam at the mouth they prove that this particular flag is "correct" and no other .. And Tricolor is called the Vlasov flag. IMHO I think that it is the officially approved flag that should be the symbol of the country, what do you think? request

      -----------------------------------
      For example, I believe that it is necessary to sort things out with heraldry, especially in terms of crowns ... Because we had a bourgeois revolution in 1917 and these crowns were demolished from all the facades, then these same bourgeois returned crowns in 1991, and having fraudulently broken the country and plundered state assets ... The heiress of the USSR - the Russian Federation still used and is using the infrastructure of the USSR. China and Turkey use the flags given to them during the founding of the PRC and the state of Turkey (no Ottoman heraldry) ... So, my opinion is that now there should be not the tricolor, but the flag of the USSR ... Although nothing prevents having all the flags as official and one as a state, now we have apparently the Third (in a row) republic, by analogy with France ...

    I join in the congratulations.

    Even under Peter the Great, the exact order of the horizontal stripes of the flag and their significance were determined. It coincided with an ancient understanding of the structure of the world. Down below (Red line) - The physical world of people, full of worries, suffering, passions. Above (Blue colour) - the world is angelic, heavenly. Even higher (white stripe) is the divine world: Faith, Hope and Love.
    There is currently no official interpretation of the colors of the flag of Russia. However, in pre-revolutionary times they were interpreted as follows:
    white is the color of freedom;
    blue - color of the Virgin;
    red color is a symbol of sovereignty.
    Another common interpretation was the correlation of flag colors with the historical regions of the Russian Empire: White (white), Lesser (blue) and Great Russia (red).
    Currently, the following interpretation of the Russian flag color values ​​is most often used:
    white means peace, purity, purity, perfection;
    blue - the color of faith, fidelity and truth;
    red symbolizes constancy, energy, strength, courage and blood shed for the Fatherland.

      And the same colors on the French flag, according to the views of the Freemasons, mean freedom, equality and fraternity.

        do you mean that we spoke not Russian, but Russian? so how should the same Chechen and Avar speak? also Russian, defining his citizenship? Well, you won’t wait for peace with such an attitude towards other peoples.

          Nothing of the kind. But on the contrary, I say that a person should say that he is a Chechen or a Tatar or an Avar.
          Well, let there be a national wording "Citizen of Russia" ... But a Russian? .... forgive my ear cuts.
          I'm a Tatar ... a citizen of Russia .... well, that sounds bad or what? You have to understand that our country was very different from the West precisely because it was multinational .... Now in Europe, too, thanks to emigrants, not everything is so simple with self-awareness ... so they also began to practice the phrase "citizen ... of Italy .. France ... etc. " or for example a French of Algerian origin ...
          In short, I don’t want people in our society to call themselves Russians ... This depersonalizes the population ... well then, let's take it even better ... we will call ourselves earthlings ... is it not true? we are all earthlings ... but is that right? I think not ... let there be a diversity of peoples ...

          And I think it would be ethical and correct to say NOT "I am a Russian" but "I am a Citizen of Russia" something like that.

And I think our tricolor also earned the right to be proud of it (especially in the last years of our long-suffering history) So, guys! Let our tricolor proudly fly and that we should not be ashamed (which is unlikely) of our flag!

    Well then of course with the holiday.
    But since we were talking about the flag, we are full CLOUNDS on this issue. Our country changes it so often that there is absolutely no thrill for this flag. And the question of state symbols is more than serious. And I think that in spite of everything ... it is necessary to carry out painstaking research ... to present to the public ... and to conduct an ALL-RUSSIAN REFERENDUM ..... e mine ... also with a hymn .... Thank God at least the coat of arms truly historical and with the exception of the period of the USSR ... It counts several hundred years.
    But the flag and the anthem ... need to be discussed ... and HOW A COUNTRY and not a few there .... mmm .... a person will say so let it be forever ....

    And yes .... this Dutch Peter’s craft doesn’t excite me at all and patriotism doesn’t whip ... And that would remove the USSR flag from all issues too ....

    But I was always wondering where this huge tricolor flag came from. Either grateful Muscovites, imbued with democratic values ​​and freedom from a totalitarian, bloody communist regime, sewed this flag all night; whether the equally grateful weavers of the three-mountain manufactory, intoxicated by the wind of freedom, also did it in one night!

    For me, the tricolor is forever associated with the white movement and with the Vlasov army. My flag is red. And it is strange that Russia still does not have its own symbol, like the USSR had a hammer and sickle.

    Everything is just logical here. You were born in one country, you lived, you lived normally, suddenly some uncle (still walking on the earth) destroys your homeland. Another in a drunken stupor, seizing power, changes EVERYTHING in it !!! And the next day they announce to us - we now have a different flag, but the emblem must be changed. Well, the anthem is generally not at any gate ....
    Threat On the other hand, our children were born under a different flag (on this basis there is an eternal conflict with his wife) wink

    "Well, again there is no reason not to drink." Those who speak of a completely indifferent attitude to the flag and to the holiday are right. The older generation (if it does not, of course, belong to a thieving bunch of tradesmen) remembers what the country was, and under which flag we really had something to be proud of in comparison with today. They are also proud of the flag today. But some kind of pathetic pride, which is estimated in foreign money. There is neither the Great Victory, nor the Great Space Exploration, nor the Great Army capable of defending the country. So the "tricolor" will remain the tricolor and not the flag of the country until the majority have a conscious reason to be proud of it. By the way, what epoch-making events the Russian Empire can be proud of when the "tricolor" was the state flag.

      Yes, no. Accepted as a state in 1896 by Nicholas 2. Only Nicholas reigned beneath him 2. The board is inglorious and wretched. How everyone knows it ended. History loves to repeat. The current tricolor is the same makeshift as Nicholas 2 tricolor, and will end the history of the modern tricolor is the same as at the beginning of the 20th century. Ahead of the 17th year. Something like this.

        Actually, I had no doubts, but I asked the question to those who violently admire this mysterious holiday. At the same time, it is worth asking them how they feel about the holiday established by "dear Boris Nikolaich" and whether they consider it a great achievement in our history.

    In accordance with federal law, the state flag of the Russian Federation is constantly located in the office of the President of Russia and is installed in the Administration of the head of state, in the meeting rooms of the Council of the Federation and the State Duma, the government, the Constitutional, Supreme and Supreme Courts of the Russian Federation, the Prosecutor General’s Office, the Central Bank, the Accounts Chamber, Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation.

    Here the Central Bank is out of place. The wrong flag is its symbol.

      The people accepted what they stuck in it.
      So this is the most stupid flag.
      From the point of view of traditions, look at the posts above. Flags of Ivan the Terrible and the first Romanovs.
      From the point of view of Heraldry, black and golden white
      Black-color coat of arms
      Golden - coat of arms background color
      White - color of St. George the Victorious
      And this tricolor is a stupid fiction far-fetched and stripped from the Dutch flag by Peter.
      And then they came up with the meaning of the flowers.

    I’m closer, of course, red. Over time, I think we will decide on the Flag, as the Renaissance of Russia. I myself am surprised, but now, with good reason, I am proud of My Country! I do not like the designation of Russians. I am proud that I am RUSSIAN. Neither Bagration, nor Tottleben, nor Barclay de Tolly and many other Great Figures of Russia were ashamed to be such.

    I like the Soviet flag much more. With all his appearance, he exudes unprecedented power and strength, which was feared and respected, with which he was reckoned and listened to. It was precisely the flag of a great power, even the SUPER Power, and not the next tricolor, which is half of the countries of the world, except that the colors are different and in different order.
    As for the coat of arms of Russia, the two-headed eagle, in this form I also like it more than as the official coat of arms. Take a close look at the base of the monument to Fighters for Power of Soviets in Vladivostok.

    The flag is a symbol.
    In my opinion, it makes sense to listen to the opinion of the people, conduct sociological research, conduct a vote.
    I really like "Soviet", red, sickle - hammer, and an asterisk :)
    "White-blue-red", as a Citizen, I respect, but I do not feel "special awe", and if I also take into account the opinions of "historians-interpreters", "esotericists", not the most "lucky".
    Like Imperial, liked the idea of ​​Georgievsky.
    "White-blue-red" - allegedly the influence of France, "Imperial" - allegedly the influence of Germany.
    In voting, I would probably choose between "Imperial" and "Georgievsky",
    More sympathy is on the side of "Georgievsky" +
    for example

    There were opinions, from the point of view of experts in "esotericism" and other occult and occult sciences, - "a two-headed eagle, with a crown on its head, is a symbol of a dead empire, a symbol of regression," and that under such a depressing symbol, it is very difficult to achieve a positive movement / development.
    Who knows. Maybe this has a sacred meaning? Or maybe a simple quackery.
    I remembered about the "pseudoscience" of genetics and the "pseudoscience" of cybernetics, in which the USSR, at one time, was ahead of the rest.
    As an option, remove the crown, replacing it with a star.
    Crown - a crown, isolation, completion of creation, final form, has no development.
