Flag of Russia

The flag of Russia is a tricolor flag consisting of three equal horizontal fields: white on the top, blue in the middle, and red on the bottom.

The flag was first used as an ensign for Russian merchant ships and became official as the flag of the Tsardom of Russia in 1696.

It remained in use until the establishment of the Russian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic (RSFSR) in 1917.

During the period of the Soviet Union, it used a flag with a red field with a golden hammer and sickle and a golden bordered red star on top.

With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the pre-revolutionary tricolor was re-introduced as the flag of the Russian Federation in 1991 in the 1:2 ratio. The Tsarist tricolor was fully restored in 1993 after the constitutional crisis as the current flag.

Russian Proverbs

Russian Proverbs are a traditional and straightforward saying that expresses a truth based on common sense or experience.

Some Russian proverbs exist in other languages because people share with cultures similar to theirs. 

The popularity of Russian proverbs is due to the universality of their meaning and because most people can relate to them in some way and on some level.
