Flag of Belarus 🇧🇾

Flag of Belarus

The Belarusian flag 🇧🇾 consists of two horizontal stripes - wider red one at the top and narrower green one at the bottom. Moreover, the left edge of the flag is fringed by traditional Belarusian red and white pattern. This ornament is used to decorate folk costumes, and it should indicate the age of Belarusian nation and its manual dexterity and skills. The flag was adopted in 1995 after a referendum and it replaced the flag that Belarus used before annexing to the Soviet Union and after gaining the independence in 1991. However, some interest groups are still using the original flag to express the disagreement with the government and they deem the referendum of 1995 invalid since it allegedly failed to meet democratic principles.
