BELARUS FLAGS AND BUNTING

When Belarus proclaimed independence in 1991 it readopted the white-red-white tricolour, first introduced in 1918. This was used in great numbers during rallies and demonstrations against the regime of the pro-Russian president. In response a presidential decree was issued introducing the current flag, which is similar to the flag of Soviet Belorussia (1951-1991). A white and red national ornament appears on the vertical stripe at the hoist.
