The flag of the Chuvash Republic, a federal subject of Russia, is charged with a stylized tree of life, a symbol of rebirth, with the three suns, a traditional emblem popular in Chuvash art. Deep red stands for the land, the golden yellow—for prosperity.

Earlier (ca. 1992-1997) depictions abroad, even in technical vexillological articles, showed purple instead of (dark) red, due to misinterpretation of the Russian word "пурпурный" purpurnyi.[1]
