THE DAY OF THE STATE FLAG OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION

14 April 2022

The Day of the State Flag of the Russian Federation is celebrated annually on 22nd August. For the first time the white-blue-red flag was raised on the first Russian warship "Orel" (Eagle), during the reign of the father of Peter the Great, Alexei Mikhailovich Romanov. The beginning of the use of the Russian white-blue-red flag on land is associated with the geographical discoveries of Russian sailors. Officially, the white-blue-red flag was approved as the state flag of Russia only on the eve of the coronation of Nicholas II in 1896. The three colors of the national flag received an official interpretation. Red meant "statehood", blue - the color of the Mother of God, white - the color of freedom and independence.

The national flag is constantly raised on the buildings of federal institutions, as well as on the buildings of state authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and local governments. The national flag is hoisted on the buildings of diplomatic missions, consular offices, residences of the heads of diplomatic missions and consular offices, as well as on the buildings of other official representations of Russia.
