The flag of Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, in Russia, is a blue field charged with a white triangle at the hoist side. At the centre of the triangle is a roundel of the Russian national flag rimmed with a thick yellow border.

SymbolismEdit

  • The triangle symbolises the peninsular position of the okrug — the easternmost territory of Russia.
  • The white stands for the Arctic, midnight sun, snowy landscape, pure and vulnerable land.
  • The blue field stands for the waters of the two oceans: the Arctic and the Pacific.
  • The Yellow ring with the Russian tricolour in it, symbolises that in this region the sun raises over Russia, and here a new day begins; and stands for yarar, traditional instrument of the local ingenious peoples.
  • The yellow stands also for gold and gold-mining, one of the main industries of the region.[2]
