CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) was founded December 8, 1991.This organization emerged after the collapse of the Soviet Union.The Bialowieza Forest managers from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus signed an agreement on the basis of the CIS.Later joined the Commonwealth and other former Soviet republics except the Baltic states.
Commonwealth flag history of official legalization
Every state and international associations have their own symbols: the flag, emblem, flag, etc.CIS can not be an exception to the rule.For some reason, the approval of the flag of the organization arose immediately after signing the contract in the Bialowieza Forest.The first projects were in 1994.In the same year was approved by the Council of the Interparliamentary Assembly of CIS member-states the draft Regulations on the flag and emblem of the organization.
formalization of external symbols of the international organization continued in 1995.The fact is that on May 13 this year, there was a meeting of the Interparliamentary Assembly in full, in which the position of the CIS about the flag, its description is officially approved.It remained just a formality: the documents were signed by the presidents of the CIS countries.This event took place June 19, 1996.
Description flag Commonwealth of Independent States
Flags of many countries and organizations have emerged on the basis of some historical elements.In addition, state symbols, the image they often have a certain ideological burden.If we talk about the flag of the CIS, it was created artificially.There is no particular ideological or historical fact no.
What is this symbol?Basis - blue rectangular canvas.Look at the center of the flag.There we see a figure in white.For many it may be an association that they see arms stretched up to the sky, with some treatment.But it's just a vertical line, and the ring-shaped strip.In the center - a circle of golden color.Watching this composition, we realize that the CIS - a peaceful organization that professes the principles of equality and partnership between the countries.
Flag of Ukraine
also talk about the flag of the CIS.Let's start with Ukrainian character.The official symbol of Ukraine was approved by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, January 28, 1992.The idea is that this day should be considered as National Flag Day, but lawmakers have found another option.This public holiday that does not have the status of official weekend is celebrated on August 23 to August 24 celebration of Independence Day of Ukraine.
What is a flag?It is a rectangular canvas.The upper part of the flag is blue and the bottom - yellow.If we divide the canvas into 5 parts, the blue is 2/5, and 3/5 of the zheltoy-.Such coloring means "heaven" and "earth".It was under this flag, military units formed on the territory of Ukraine, took part in the Battle of Grunwald in 1410.
State flag of the Russian Federation
current Russian flag - the tricolor.Historically, in appearance like a Russian flag on the similar characters from some European countries: France, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and others.Talking about the complete identity is not necessary.With only the French general color.If you compare the Russian flag with the symbol of Slovenia, we find absolutely identical, but the Slovenian canvas has suffered additional images.
Decree of the President of the Russian Federation Boris Yeltsin on December 11, 1993 approved the description of the Russian flag.It is a rectangular sheet, which consists of three identical (as stated in the text of the decree, "of equal") bands.The color of the top bands - white, medium colored in blue and lower, respectively, red.In 2000, the Russian Federation adopted the Constitutional Law "On the State Flag."
Flags CIS republics
a revision to the state symbols of the CIS countries, we see that in most paintings have three colors.For example, take the flag of the state of Armenia.At the same symbol depicts three bands of red, blue, and orange.The cloth of the same color flag of Armenia was in 1919, when the nation fought for its independence.In the Belarusian symbol of national sovereignty is also connected to the three colors.There are two horizontal (red and green) and one vertical stripes (red and white, with ornament).
Flags of the countries of the CIS, which shows the photos in the article are very beautiful.For example, the Moldovan flag emblem country.We see three vertical stripes of equal size.Left Sinia tinged with azure, the average (where the painted coat of arms) - yellow, and the most extreme (right) - red.By the way, symbolic that the red color on the flag of the CIS is no good.This we can say for sure (Russia, Armenia, Moldova).
Flags former CIS Central Asian region, too, in its original.On most of the paintings we see astronomichekie symbols: sun, moon, stars.Certainly, it has its own meaning, because Eastern culture and traditions have always been strong.For example, consider the flag of Turkmenistan.General background - green.From left to see a red-maroon (color of power and wealth) strip, which depicts five national symbols.Near this band crescent and five stars in white.
Commonwealth flag (photo attached) - is artificially created image, which carries no historical tradition.In principle, it is logical, because the members of the CIS, except for the period of stay in the USSR, not so much in common.Nationalities of the country can be divided into several ethnic strong interconnected groups that have common historical roots.
