The white-blue-red flag became national symbol of Russia relatively recently: in 1991, when over the White house in Moscow had raised the tricolour adopted as the flag of a state official by Government decree.
This symbol is associated with interesting historical facts. For example:
1. Initially, the tricolor was raised in the XVII century on the first Russian military ship «Eagle» under Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich.
2. Spread the flag was given by Peter I, when ordered to raise his on merchant ships. Thus, according to the legend, the sketch was created by the Emperor himself.
3. There are several versions of «decoding» colors of the tricolor. Based to one of them, white means freedom, blue is the virgin patronizing Russia, red is autocracy. According to the second, the white symbolizes nobility, blue is honesty, red is courage and generosity inherent in the Russian people. The third version assigns multiple values to each of the bands: white is nobility and frankness; blue is loyalty, honesty, perfection and chastity; red is courage, boldness, magnanimity and love.
4. The tricolor became national symbol only in 1896, and in April 1918, was abolished by the Bolsheviks, finally returning to its place of honor at official and ceremonial events of the Russian Federation in 1991.
Today, the Day of State flag of the Russian Federation is widely celebrated with solemn processions, flashmobs, auto and motocross, and of course, holiday concerts, whose main goal is to tell the countrymen the history of the holiday, the importance and value of state symbols.
