The flag depicts a beautiful woman symbolizing the local river in the Verkh-Invensky rural settlement of the Perm Territory. Can you imagine anything more joyful and welcoming than this young lady in a traditional dress, opening her arms as if hugging you? The painting also symbolizes the local river Inwa, which is translated from the local language as “woman-river”.

4. Malevich's style, approved by Catherine the Great.

What did the small town of Shuya put on its flag? Butter? Maybe gold? How about a yellow brick? In fact, the flag depicts soap, since the city in the Ivanovo region was once a major center of soap production in the 16th and 17th centuries. Shuya made the number one cosmetic brand for Catherine the Great. The Empress liked the mild anti-aging product so much that she personally approved the soap as part of the city's coat of arms.

5. Eggs on the Olympic podium.

Neither the empress nor the artists of the Russian suprematist movement of the 20th century could understand how minimalism would inspire the country's heraldry. Residents of the Kholokholensk District of the Tver Region chose three yellow bricks on their flag - this time to immortalize a ceramic factory recently founded in the village. In addition, a few eggs were added as the village has used its chicken farm for centuries.

6. Rooster?

The flag of the Domnovsky rural settlement, a small village in the Kaliningrad region, which was the territory of Germany until 1945, is associated with East Prussian pagan beliefs. Kurko, the deity of harvest and food, is most often depicted as a rooster.
