About the flag

The flag of Leningrad is striking. The flag was a white cloth, the coat of arms (from the soviet time) were in the middle on this. For me isn’t known however that the City of Leningrad had a flag. I have seen this flag on an exhibition of socialist partner cities of Dresden, at the beginning of the 1980-years. Next to this flag hung the city flags of Wroclaw, of Skopje, Usti nad Labem, and Dresden itself. It was usual in the GDR to put coat of arms on a white cloth if there was not any official city flag. Perhaps it was this case…
