The Flag of the President of Ukraine was confirmed by the Decree of the President of Ukraine as of November 29, 1999 and used during inaugural ceremony. It is the Chairman of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine that presents it to President. On delivering his inaugural address President takes a special seat at the session hall of the Verkhovna Rada next to which President’s colour is placed.

President’s colour represents a blue square cloth bearing the golden trident in the center – the Sign of Prince Volodymyr the Great’s State, edged with gold vegetative ornament. Two-sided silken cloth was embroidered with the use of computer technologies. One side of the President’s colour bears more than a million stitches of a pure gold and yellow gold threads. The embroidered trident has volume due to a special lining. And the flags of the British Queen, US and French Presidents are made with the use of the same technology.
