The Coast Guard ensign is similar to the ensign of the Russian Coast Guard, but with the order of the colours rearranged.
The Coast Guard flag is in 2 X 3 proportions. In the center of the blue field is a white saltire (St. Andrew's cross, for the patron saint of sailors), whose width is 1/5 of the flag's hoist. A green (the Border Poilce's colour) fimbriation, whose width is 1/5 the white cross' width is separated from the white cross by the same distance. The flag is charged in the center with the emblem of the Border Police. The battle flag (photo) has no emblem.
