During the last one or two years the chuvash flag has been seen locally more and more with the shade of red made to match the russian national flag’s, and currently is hard to find any of the older dark red flags (those in use has faded to pink). Of course there wasn’t any legal change, this is simply an trend in the flag making business.

A dark yellow variation, quite often these days. I guess some flag manufactor got it’s fabrics mixed up and sold the lot even so. I guess these will disappear in a year or two.

Softer shades

Whereas normal red and yellow are used on the flag, these “loud” colors are often replaced by softer shades in other occasions, such as government building’s signs, stationary paper, official forms and institutional advertising. Very light yellow (RGB:255-255-153) and brownish red (RGB:153-51-51) are the colors used in these occasions, instead of yellow and red. [These colors can be seen in a wrong flag depiction — ed.]

This seems to be out of fashion now, two years later — at least in goverment building’s signs: new plaques have all the bright colors used on the flag.
