Flag of Ukraine

The flag of Ukraine consists of two horizontal stripes - light blue one on the top and bright yellow one at the bottom. The blue stripe represents the sky and the yellow one stands for Ukrainian fertile land and fields. Ukraine has undergone many territorial changes during its existence. It was doing very well in the 10th and 11th century as an independent Kievan Rus, however it was attached to Lithuania later. After gaining independence, it was eventually annexed again, this time to Russia and then to the Soviet Union. In 1991, Ukraine became independent and since 1992 it has started to use the flag in the present form again. Since that time, Ukraine has been facing a series of economic and political problems, so the national colors that also have religious significance are of great importance for Ukrainians.
