Description of the flag

The official proportions are 2:3. There are four stripes; from top to bottom, white (7/20), light blue (9/20), white (1/20), and green (3/20). The full state arms are to be placed on the flag, 3/20 below the top, but it is permissible to make the flag without the arms.

Though used since 1997, this flag is not registered by the Russian state herald.
