The Flag

This flag might remotely relate to the Teutonic Knights, considering that Volynia lyes in the historical area of the so called Greater Lithuania. The same cross appears in the flag of Novovolynsk.
António Martins, 14 September 1999

In describing the new flag of the Volyinia Oblast, mention is made of a possible connection to the Teutonic Knights. However, there is a stronger connection to the Kozaks. The Ukrainian Kozaks adopted the flag of the Crusaders, basically the red-white flag of Switzerland. They sometimes used the Greek Cross used on the Swiss flag, called also the "Cross of Korsun" after St Vladimir's trip there to be baptised, the white Cross of Malta and, at other times, the Templar Cross (used by both the Templars and the Teutonic Knights), which is also used in the flag of Volyinia, both modern and historical. The white Cross on Red flag is also in the "Great Arms" of the Ukrainian Republic. Also, the Teutonic Knights were not well liked in areas like Volyinia due to their attacks against Rus' at the time of St. Alexander Nevsky. The Teutonic Knights were Roman Catholic and the people of Volyinia were and are staunchly Orthodox. They would not have consciously approved of any symbol connected to the Knights.
Alexander Roman, Ph.D, 17 April 2000

"There is a panel with a ratio of the parties 5 to 7. At the centre on a red background is a white cross, which concerns by the ends of a flag edges. In a right top corner is paty cross, one of most ancient variants of historical Volyn' crosses at XV-XVIII centuries."

Coat of Arms

image from

"In a gules Spanish shield is an argent cross. It is a symbol of life, and also symbolizes Christianity. The gules colour means bravery, courage, fearlessness, love of the man to the Creator, readiness to give back life for the God and native land. The argent means cleanliness and purity."
Dov Gutterman, 20 September 2002
