The flag of Russia consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width. White on the top, blue in the middle, and red on the bottom. Each color holds symbolic significance deeply rooted in Russian history and culture. The white stripe represents purity, peace, and honesty, while the blue stripe symbolizes loyalty, faithfulness, and determination. The red stripe signifies courage, valor, and the sacrifices made by the Russian people throughout history. The flag’s design dates back to the late 17th century, and it has remained largely unchanged since then, representing the unity, strength, and resilience of the Russian nation across diverse landscapes and historical epochs.
