Overview

"Russkiy Mir Foundation (Russian: Фонд "Русский мир", literally "Russian World Foundation", although Mir, Мир, stands for peace) is a Russian agency created by Presidential Decree No. 796 of June 21, 2007, as a government-funded organisation aimed at promoting the Russian language as Russia's national heritage and a significant aspect of Russian and world culture, and supporting Russian language teaching programs abroad, forming the Russian World as a global project. It co-operates with the Russian Orthodox Church (Russian) values. They also build the "Russian Centers" which are the actual facilities in charge of executing the program.
The Foundation is a joint project of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Education and Science and supported by both public and private funds."

The Flag

This organization seems to have two types of flags:
- first variant: a horizontal flag having the logo on the top, inside a maroon disc, over a white background (occupying almost two thirds of the flag) and below on the bottom one can read "Фонд Русский мир" in Cyrillyc, as seen here.

- second variant: is the same as the above, only that the colors are red instead of maroon, as seen here.
