Three equal horizontal stripes (white, blue, red).


Originally, the design of the Russian flag is due to Tsar Peter the Great, who, after a state visit to Holland at the end of the 17th century, decided to adapt the design of the flags of shipping in Russia (similarly) to the original Dutch design. The colors white, blue and red are considered 'pan-Slavic colors', as many Eastern European countries already followed suit in the 19th century and integrated these colors into their flags as well.


Composer: Александр Васильевич Александров (Alexandr Vasilievich Alexandrov) Songwriter: Серге́й Влади́мирович Михалко́в (Sergei Vladimirovich Mikhalkov)
