Far East State (1918-1920)

According to James Minahan’s Nations Without States [mnh96], there was a Far Eastern state, established on 23 May 1918, under Japanese auspices, by the White Army general Semonov. He does not say if that state used the blue-white-red tricolor, or another flag.

Russian tricolor was used: 29 Jun 1918 - 22 Sep 1918, 28 Oct 1918 - 12 Dec 1920, 26 May 1921 - 25 Oct 1922

Far-Eastern Republican Party, founded in 1990 in Vladivostok. (Source: letter of D. Gorbachev, St.Petersburg) The letters DVRP mean Далне-Восточная Республиканская Партия Dalne-Vostoĉnaâ Respublikanskaâ Partiâ. This party was very small, and I’m not sure it exists now or not.
Victor Lomantsov, 25 Dec 2000 and 04 Jan 2001

From the flag design I can see a relationship with the Navy. Considering the date of adoption, this might have been one of the first re-uses of the St. Andrews flag? Thats’ two questions. The third is about the agenda of this party, which I suppose lobbying for republic status for the Maritime territory, right? If so, it might have disapperared or considerably decreased when regions and territories gained the same previlegies as republics (1993). I may even suppose that this flag, with or without letters, was the proposed flag for the proposed republic (and that’s question #4). Final question: Wouldn’t this flag be regarded as a desacration by the Russian Navy?

Nations Without States [mnh96] mentions a «flag of the national movement» for the Far East region of Russia which differs from the Cross of St. Andrew based flag of the Far Eastern party. The flag is a horizontal tricolor of dark blue, white and red.

This is a very doubtful flag.

This pattern is similar to the background of the Qabarovsk city arms.
