The Flag

Flag and Coat of Arms were adopted on 17th August 1999 for Donets'k Region, Ukraine.
Michael Simakov, 21 October 1999

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"Flag of Donets'ka oblast' was approved in August, 17, 1999. It is a rectangular canvas with a ratio of the sides 3:2 divided horizontally. There is a rising yellow sun with 12 rows in the upper blue part of flag. In the lower black part there are five yellow ovals, one under another."
Dov Gutterman, 3 December 1999

I received more info about the flag of the recently posted Donetsk region flag from Nikolaj Starodubcev (my translation): "Donetsk city doesn't have an official flag. About the regional Coat of Arms, I could only say that on the shield is displayed the kind of palm tree once made by a local ironsmith."
Antonio Martins, 20 December 1999

I have found the information on regional symbols of Donets'k Region (Ukraine) at <www.aist.com.ua/~donkr>:
Coat of Arms and Flag were adopted 17 of August, 1999 by Session of Regional Council. The flag is black-blue with yellow sun in the centre.

Dov Gutterman , 3 December 1999

I have found the information on regional symbols of Donets'k Region (Ukraine) at <www.aist.com.ua/~donkr>:
"Coat of Arms: Or, a Palm Azure issuant from Base Sable. The shield is crowned with golden crown, surrounded with oak-wreath. Motto - "The Opportunity is proved with business" (in russian language). The palm is a famous "palm of Mertsalov". It was made by blacksmith A. Mertsalov. He made it from a rail. The metal "palm" took part in Great Industry Exhibition of 1896. Now the "palm" is kept in Museum in St-Petersburg. The "palm" in modern Coat of Arms symbolizes the heavy work of and the creative work. The crown symbolizes the status of Coat of Arms (regional) Oak-wreath - greatness and reliability. Motto is a saying of famous chemist D. Mendeleev. In 1897 he went in this region and wrote in his notepad: "Recent desert has come to life. Success complete. The Opportunity is proved with business" .
