Flag of Russia (GIF)


The flag of Russia is a tri-colored flag with three equal horizontal areas: white on the top, blue in the middle, and red on the bottom. The white color symbolizes nobility and honesty, the blue color represents fidelity, honesty, perfection, and chastity, and the red color expresses courage, generosity, and love. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the current version of the flag was adopted on December 11, 1993.

The double-headed eagle on its coat of arms was first used as a state symbol in the 14th century. There are three crowns on the eagle heads, symbolizing the sovereignty of the Russian Federation and its regions. The scepter and orb held by the eagle in its claws represent the power of the state and a united state. On the shield on the chest of the eagle, there is a mounted cavalry slaying the serpent, symbolizing the victory of good over evil and the defense of the homeland.

The Russia flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Russia, officially the Russian Federation, is a transcontinental country in Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. Its capital is Moscow, and its population is about 146,794,000.
