The flag of Kaluga oblast has been adopted on 30 January 2004. It
is made of three horizontal stripes R/W/V, the middle white stripe being 1/6
of the height of the flag. Ratio is 2:3.

Crown taken from city arms (adopted 1777:
Azure, a Fess wavy Argent accompanied in the top with an Emperor’s

Unwisely similar to the (pre-existent) flag of another Russian
Tataria, also red over green divided by a thin white
stripe (but 7+1+7, instead of Kaluga’s 5+2+5). The presence of the
crown and the different ratio (Tataria flag is 1:2) might not be difference

Also similar to the new flag of Chechnya,
which was adopted later the same year (2004).

One also has to wonder what the people of Tajikistan
think about this new flag.

Indeed: A crown, red-white-green horizontal stripes… The relative
widths are completely different, as also the crown’s details and
position, but even so it is a interesting coincidence…

There is a text on
line about the adoption of a flag for Kaluga oblast.

On a red field with a white stripe in the center (?) the arms
(with prevailing green color). Note that the flag has been approved
by the regional heraldic commission and will be further discussed by
the All-Russian Heraldic Commission in St. Petersburg.
