About the flag

This is the flag of the city of Novosibirsk according to The flag is obviously derived from the coat of arms. Here’s the description:

The flag is divided diagonally from upper right to lower left corner by blue belt with white waves. Left upper field is green. Lower right field is white. Colors of flag were taken from city arms and mean: green field — health, nature wealth (resources) of Siberia, white field — purity and snow of Siberia, blue belt with white waves — river Ob’, on which the city is situated.
Pascal Gross, 15 Jan 1999

Interesting … the white-green characteristic for many Siberian flags reported is retained, as well as the blue that seems to be the third colour of the “general rule”.
