Ternopils'ka oblast - The flag is a heraldic banner in proportion of 2:3 and is divided horizontally, the upper yellow stripe being 1/3 the width of the flag and the lower blue. The upper stripe is charged with three white towers. The lower stripe is charged in the centre with assigned crosswise yellow sword and key.
The arms and flag were adopted on December 21, 2001. New symbols (designed by D. Chepil). The towers personify three historical lands - Halychyna, Podillya and Volyn - from which parts the modern oblast has been built. The key and sword symbolize the important strategic meaning of region.
