|Flag of Ingushetia|
The flag of the Republic of Ingushetia is a rectangular white panel, in the centre of which is a solar sign in the form of a red circle with three arched beams coming from the latter. The ratio of the flag’s width to its length is 1:2.
There are two green stripes — along the whole length of the upper and lower parts of the flag. Each of them is 1/6 of the total width of the flag. The radius of the inner circle of the solar sign is 1/6 of the flag’s width. Each of the three beams of the solar sign is a semicircle, the inner radius of which is 1/8 of the flag’s width. The width of the stripe, making a circumference of the solar sign and that of the beams, is 1/36 of the flag’s width.
The beams are located evenly along the circumference of the solar sign (red triskelion) and directed anticlockwise.
In the religion and philosophy of the Ingushes, the Solar emblem (in the center of the flag) represents not only the sun and the universe but also awareness of the oneness of the spirit in the past, present and future. The red recalls the struggle of the Ingush people for existence and in the defence of their homeland. The white symbolizes the divine purity of the thoughts and views of the nation. The green is the symbol of Islam.
