Euromaidan protests

images by Victor Lomantsov
Several flags seen in Euromaidan in Kiev 2013–2014.
Demonstraters used many types of flags:
  1. national Ukrainian flags with hand-made inscriptions (very often the name of the home-city of demonstrants)
  2. different variants of "Ukrainian-European" flags, for example: European flag with Ukrainian symbol in the centre (see photo)
  3. European flag with inscription "Ukraine is Europe" (see photo)

"self-defense units"

image by Victor Lomantsov

In november 2013 Maidan self-defense units were organized. 5 January 2014 several flags for companies of Maidan self-defense ("sotnia") were sanctified and presented to the units. At the photos I saw flags of 2nd. 5th, 6th, 9th, 16th, 19th, 25th companies with respective ciphers. All flags have standard design – yellow field with blue shield contains number of the company. Inscription – "SAMOOBORONA MAIDANU" ("Maidan self-defense").

Main flag of Maidan self-defense have the same design but the trident depicted in the blue shield instead of company number. Colour of the shield is dark. (photo)

Libertarian flags

image by Martin Karner

A German flag seller offers this unofficial "Libertarian Flag", created by Rostislav Sinitsyn and David Zurabov in March 2020. It shows a Gadsden-style yellow-black rattlesnake centered on the Ukrainian National Flag. A blue shield (fimbriated yellow) with yellow trident is placed in the canton. The term "libertarian" might imply a rather socio-political (liberty) than a national meaning (freedom), but this question remains open until we have secured information from the creators or from anywhere else. No doubt this and similar flags are being used today also in the sense of national freedom from Russian occupation.

Million Marihuana March

image by Mikhail Revnivtsev and Antonio Martins-Tuvalkin

On (in Russian), there is a flag of Million Marihuana March, which is planned to march on May, 7, 2005 in Kiev, capital of Ukraine, in support of of legalization of marihuana.
Mikhail Revnivtsev, 2 May 2005

Interesting that the design shows no hint as to what it's about; most such flags and banners here have the marijuana leaves prominently displayed.
Albert S. Kirsch, 3 May 2005

This march has no any relation to Parade of the Victory (Pobedy), which will take place in Kiev and in Moscow on May, 9. Besides, the mayor of Kiev yet has not given the sanction to carrying out of this march in support of marihuana (in Ukraine, as well as in Russia, marihuana is forbidden with other drugs).
Mikhail Revnivtsev, 3 May 2005

I believe this flag is based on the various other type of "Rasta" flags that are sold in the US and other places.
Zachary Harden, 3 May 2005

A 4:5 horizontally stripped flag of green, yellow, red and black. I must say that, design wise, this flag may not be specifically Ukrainian, even though it was perhaps created and used only in this Kiev march.
It seems to be a mix of the pan-african colors (red-yellow-green) and the Garvey colors (red-black-green), certainly based on their popularity among rastafarian (or rastafarian-looking) circles.
The horizontal stripes may also be inspired in another pride and protest flag: the gay pride rainbow flag.

Party of Greens of Ukraine (Партія Зелених України, Partija Zelenykh Ukrainy, PZU) succeeded in 1990 the Green World Association, itself founded in 1987. The party claimed 5.5% of the votes and 19 seats at the Parliament in the 1998 election, a success which was not confirmed either in the 2002 (1.4%, no seat) or 2007 (0.4%, no seat) elections. Chaired by Vladimir Kosterin and claiming more than 80 000 members, the Green Party of Ukraine has been a member of the European Green Party since January 1994. Website at
The flag of PZU, as photographied by Raimo Oksala, behind two lovely young members of the party during the 2005 conference of the European Green Party, held at Kiev, is white with the emblem of the party, made of its name (Партія Зелених   Party of Greens, "of Ukraine" dropped) in green letters flanked on its right by a suflower with a green central part, the whole being placed over a green horizontal stripe crossing the whole flag.

"Party of Regions" represents generally Donetsk's bandit clan. Victor Yanukovych is a member of Party of Regions.
Andriy Grechylo, 29 November 2004

I saw this flag many times in TV reports. But the flag always was blue (not purple). Background is in darker shade then emblem. The correct Cyrillic name is "Партія Регіонів".
Victor Lomantsov, 29 November 2004

This flag is purple in official web-site, at printed materials, also during the party congresses (in TV) etc.

Jens Pattke, 11 May 2002

I managed to gain access to the party website, and found that the Slavic Party holds that Ukraine lacks the economic basis for political independence, and should reunite with Russia and Belarus. As far as I could see, only the triband is a flag. The circular design is labeled "emblem."
John Ayer, 14 May 2002

The specs seem to be 2:3 = (2+6+2):15, with emblem and lettering "Slavanskaa partia".
I guess this is not Ukrainian, but Russian, and thus this Slavic party is rather a Russophile party (Soviet-nostalgic, monarchist, ethnic Russian?).

Social-Democratic Party of Ukraine

image by Victor Lomantsov

Social-Democratic Party of Ukraine. The flag was adopted in 1992. Rose is a traditional symbol of social-democrats, 7 stars symbolize 7 letters in the word "Ukraine", blue and yellow – national colours of Ukraine.

Victor Lomantsov, 23 Febuary 2002

Social-Democratic Party of Ukraine (Sotsial-Demokratychna Partiya Ukrainy, SDPU), led by Verkhovna Rada deputy Yuriy Buzduhan. It nominated only 127 candidates, few of whom are well-known. Marchuk had originally appeared likely to run on the SDPU list but chose the SDPU (o) instead (Vseukrainskiye Vedomosti, 21 October 1997). Buzduhan called the rival SDPU (o) not a social democratic party but a "financial-petrol clan of Surkis and Medvedchuk" (Vseukrainskiye Vedomosti, 21 October 1997). Viktor Medvedchuk, head of the Lawyers Union, is No. 4 on the SDPU (o) list, and Hryhoriy Surkis, head of Kiev's Dynamo soccer club, is No. 5.

Logo (source)

Its full name and denomination is: All-Ukrainian Public Organization (UPO) "Sokil" (Ukrainian: Всеукраїнської громадської організації "Сокіл") (since July 2014). It was established (re-established) on October, 2006 as All-Ukrainian Youth Public Organization "Sokil" (Всеукраїнська молодіжна громадська організація "Сокіл") as a NGO. It is a youth military and sports association. The goal of the organization is the development of Ukrainian society and the state on the basis of modern Ukrainian social-nationalism. Its main political ally is Svoboda.
(Ukrainian) Sokil is labeled as "re-established" since it claims to be a continuation of the previous Society "Sokil" which was established on February 11, 1894, being a youth sports organization.
The "Sokol" which started as a Pan-Slavic physical education movement in the 1860's, evolved into a much broader movement and political organization representing Pan-Slavism. The emergence of nation-states in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was marked by the creation of national models of paramilitary and/or physical training including German Turnverein, Swedish gymnastics and "Slavic", or Sokol, gymnastics. The latter was invented in Prague in 1862. During World War I and the Bolshevik Revolution Sokol members went to the Army and were persecuted by the authorities until it was banned in 1923. In Ukraine (at the time part of Soviet Union) it was banned in 1939, again by the Bolsheviks.
Sokol (meaning falcon in Slavic languages) may also refer to a Polish offshoot of the Czech movement, as well as the Ukrainian version, Sokil, mainly present in Slavic countries such as Poland, Czech Republic and the Russian Empire / (early) Soviet Union.
Sokil have been active during the Euromaidan protests as well as during the Russian invasion of Ukraine. (website [currently only via Web Archive])
