Description of the flag

I just noticed something new in front of the Cheboksary City Hall: three flag poles, of a reasonable three-storey height (i.e., much shorter than the huge nearby pole in front of the Republic Presidency) flying the Russian tricolor, the Chuvash republic flag, and… the Cheboksary city flag! Yes, the one I thought it didn’t exist! It must be very recent, this flag, since it was lacking in the august celebrations of the 530 anniversary of the city — an occasion when the Russian and Chuvash flags and colors are shown ad libitum. I’m afraid the design is neither to imaginative nor good looking: just the city greater arms on a white background. Since the greater arms are the usual shield surrounded by a yellow hop wreath and with the three suns crown and a scroll in red fimbriated yellow, you may imagine that it doesn't look to great.

No flag until 1998

I’ve been to Ĉeboksary / Ŝupaŝkar in February 1996 and in February-March 1997. No city flags were visible nor did common citizens remember such a flag ever being hoisted. However, the city’s coat of arms is a very common motif in urban decorations and tourist memorabilia.

During the city’s 528th jubilee in 1997.08.17, it was clearer than ever that Ĉeboksary / Ŝupaŝkar does not have a flag. There were a lot of Russian and Chuvash flags, and the city arms was depicted in posters, banners and street decorations — but no city flag.

Coat of arms

The Coat of Arms of Ĉeboksary / Ŝupaŝkar, capital of Chuvashia, is azure charged with five flying sinister geese argent saltire, chief gules separated by a 13 teeth serration fimbriated argent and charged with three traditional Chuvash style hearts (emerging from the 3rd, 7th and 11th tooth) argent, the middle one filled with azure and charged with the inscription "1469" argent and the other two void.

In often depictions it lacks the date, the blue filling of the central “heart”, or have additional decorations on the white fimbriations. As far as I can tell, however, this is the “official” form. The blue field of this coat of arms tends to came in every shade, from lightest to darkest. I was advised to take as “official” the relief large coat of arms over the City Hall’s main door. This looks like a quite serious heraldry work (the silver was real silver(y), not white!) and the blue shade was, well…, blue.
