About the flag

From XIX century Russian analogue of the St.Klaus - "Uncle Freeze" - presents the gifts to children not alone but with "Snegurochka" (Snow Maiden), character of Russian fairy tales, girl made from snow (see, for example, photo of the postcard). She is granddaughter of the Uncle Freeze. Of course, Snegurochka is a symbol of the New Year.
