The Flag (Standard) of the President of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Прапор (штандарт) Президента України) is the official flag of the President of Ukraine.

About[edit]

The Presidential Flag of Ukraine was confirmed by the decree of the President of Ukraine as of November 29, 1999[1] and used during inaugural ceremony. It is the chairman of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine that presents it to the president. On delivering his inaugural address, the president takes a special seat at the session hall of the Verkhovna Rada next to which the president’s colour is placed.

Design[edit]

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.[2] 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.[1][3]
