Flag of Perm Oblast

The flag of Perm Krai, in the Russian Federation, is a rectangular panel divided by a white cross, which is the St. George's Cross of the patron of Russia, charged with the arms of the krai in the center. The corners of the panel are divided into two colors: red at the top-left and bottom-right, and blue at the top-right and bottom-left. The flag was, until 2004, the flag of the Perm Oblast, which was merged with Komi-Permyak Autonomous Okrug to form Perm Krai.

The white symbolizes peace, virtue, and cleanliness of the thoughts of the Permian people. The blue symbolizes heat, beauty, and softness of human attitudes as well as the numerous lakes and rivers, riches of water resources, and the extensive bodies of water in the blast. The red symbolizes the courage, bravery, and fearlessness of the Permians. Altogether, they reflect the national colors of the Russian Federation.

The flag was adopted on May 6, 2003. The proportions are 2:3. Its design is almost identical to the flag of the Dominican Republic.
