Flag of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, Russia

The Jewish Autonomous Oblast is situated in the Far Eastern Federal District of Russia.

Its flag consists of a rainbow on a white background, with seven narrow horizontal colored stripes: red, orange, yellow, green, sky blue, blue and purple. The number of colors is meant to symbolize the seven-branched Jewish Menorah. The flag's aspect ratio is 2:3.

The seven colored stripes are centered vertically and regularly spaced; they have a height each equal to 140 of the total flag's height, and are separated by a thin spacing equal to 1120 of the total flag's height.[1]

The rainbow flag design was adopted during October 1996.[2]
