Flag of Russia (GIF)

The flag of Russia (Russian: Флаг России), known as the "Tricolor," features a simple yet powerful design consisting of three horizontal stripes of equal width: white at the top, blue in the middle, and red at the bottom. These colors have historical significance, with white symbolizing nobility, honesty, and purity, blue representing vigilance, truth, and loyalty, and red symbolizing courage and valor. The flag's design dates back to the late 17th century and has gone through various iterations in Russia's history. In its modern form, it was officially adopted in 1991, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, making it a powerful symbol of Russia's historical heritage, national identity, and commitment to democratic values.

The shield on the eagle's chest bears the image of Saint George slaying the dragon, a powerful symbol of victory over adversity.
