About the flag

Coat of arms and flag were adopted by Duma (municipal parliament) on July, 17, 1996 (Decision No 219) The Flag is light-blue, 2:3, with argent sailed ship (koch of tsar Peter’s times) in the centre. The ship bears the white pennant with blue Andrew’s cross. There are old municipal coat of arms inside the green-black-green-black-green-black-green-black ribbon (ribbon of the medal «For capture of Kaliningrad») in the “centre” of the ship. Below the ship is a “wave” made from amber. Authors of the flag: I. D. Bakrymov, E. I. Grigo, S. A. Kolevatova, M. Yu. Medvedev.

By the look of it, this ship has a rudder. If I recall correctly a Kog didn’t, it was still steered by oar. This would mean the «koch of tsar Peter’s times» is really a different type of trader. Unfortunately «tsar peter’s times» is a bit inaccurate in this respect since Tsar Peter did modernize the Russian fleets. I wonder what types of ships were used in his youth. Well, it probably comes down to the Russian word the Duma used to describe the ship.

I have a slight vexillographic problem with this flag. The ensign of the ship is blown in the opposite direction of the entire flag. That is not quite satisfying, I think. (It seems to be inevitable problem where heraldry and vexillology intersects, though.)
