About the flag

Regulations about the flag of Kemerovo-city in common (without description of flag and coat of arms and images) have been authorized on March, 28, 1997 by the Decision at 19-th session of Kemerovo’s Council (Soviet) of People’s Deputies. On August, 29, 1997 Kemerovo’s Council of People’s Deputies finally accepted the Regulations (with descriptions of a flag and coat of arms). According to this Regulations, the flag is as follows: (chapter 3, article 10)
Mikhail Revnivtsev, 05 Oct 2005

The flag of Kemerovo city is a field of red color with a vertical stripe of blue color with the image of the coat of arms of Kemerovo city in the center, surrounded by the wreath of green color. The colors bear the following symbolism:

Red
courage, glory, the blood spilled for the fatherland, energy, force.
Blue
honor, the color of the Mother of God, under patronage of whom Russia was founded, celestial forces, faithfulness, constancy, truth.
Green
symbol of hope, gladness, abundance, ecology.

All points to yet another RSFSR influenced design… all but the shade of blue, which “should” be light…
António Martins, 18 Mar 2003 and 02 Oct 2005

Yes, it is so — this is medium blue color, as on the State flag of the Russian Federation. This shade more dark, than there was a light blue strip on a flag of the RSFSR. But in Russia about any red flag with blue vertical stripw it is possible to tell, that he is similar to the State flag of the RSFSR!

I confirm it should be common, medium red color, красный, not dark.
Mikhail Revnivtsev, 06 Oct 2005

The other difference is the presence of a white fimbriation around the green area. This exists in Victor Lomantsov’s web image, but is it is it in the law?

According to these Regulations, about the coat of arms:

The coat of arms of Kemerovo-city: per fess gules and black. In the center of shield is stylized image of a chemical retort, overlapping parts of a gear and ears. In the top part of shield is name of city "Kemerovo" is underlined.

The image of the stylized chemical retort, part of a gear symbolize chemical and machine-building industries — mainstreams of industrial development of city. Ears of bread symbolize the fertility of the ground connected to application of mineral fertilizers, developed at the chemical enterprises of city.

Mikhail Revnivtsev, 05 Oct 2005

I notice that the an unidentified flag (errouneous or proposed) of the region uses the same colors as the official "emblem" of Kemerovo city (which is very different from its flag), available at the municipal website.
