Irkutsk region flag. Here is the story: before 19th century the tiger was a symbol of Irkutsk region and was represented on coat of arms. It was called "babr" - Siberian dialect word that mean tiger. Coat of arms contained "babr who holds sable (marten) in the mouth".

But there is another word in common Russian, "bobr" - a beaver. So, at some point heraldists in capital didn't understand that word and replaced babr with bobr. Painters tried to fulfill the request by adding big beaver-like tail and beaver feet to tiger.

Error of course was noticed, but modern version of region logo still features that "babr", now for historical purposes.

>at some point heraldists in capital didn't understand that word and replaced babr with bobr.
So a downgrade from a might tiger to a mere beaver imposed by outsiders. But on the other hand, tigers are somewhat common in heraldry while a beaver is a bold and unusual choice.

Persian spelling of Mujahideen.
Also a good flag right here.
Literally has the text "Idaho" and a seal that says "Great Seal of the State of Idaho", has a woman and man in a farm, a deer, a shield that contains horses around a river, and has the text "Esto perpetua" in Latin, a dead language.

By the way, modern Russian flag actually changed two times. From 91 to 93 colors and aspect ratio were slightly different.

Flag was changed when new constitution was written (and after shooting at parliament with tanks).

They're literally Islamig Gommunists. According to CRW Flags,
>Out of a vice comes an erect naked arm ending in a fist. In the fist are crossed sickle and gun with bajonette. Above the cross is a 5-point star. The whole is placed into a circle representing the globe. On its right side is a wreath of laurel(?). In the background is the silhouette of the Iran. Beneath the vice, at the top of the circle and beneath the circle there are inscriptions.
> Klaus-Michael Schneider, 18 September 2010

Is there any political context behind the flag change or was it merely an aesthetic choice?

Gommies' favourite are the workers it's easy to work them. They are rootless urbanite pleb unlike peasants who are too close to the land and prefer concrete borders, or unlike herders who are too tribalists and both group are too religious as they are close to nature and her whims and both group has ownership as well. So gommies try to turn everyone into workers and call the others class enemies.

I see I'll practice some Cyrillic today.

Russians very much like their tanks and shooting with them.

So it's a vice.

Maybe the title of OP mad the wrong impression. This isn't the board for tests. Use >>>/test/

>Is there any political context behind the flag change or was it merely an aesthetic choice?

Culture committee said that old colors, white-azure-scarlet (they were written like this) weren't used in Russian history, so white-blue-red is better. Aspect ratio is aesthetic I guess. No one (at least officially) linked flag change with that parliament happenings, it was just a good chance to replace flag in large array of laws when new constitution was signed. Although even in new flag there is no precise specification for colors, only white, blue and red are specified.

Overall, this flag has long history, but it wasn't pure old Russian flag. It was used for civilian and trade purposes in Russian Empire until 1896. Before monarchy often used black-yellow-white, other flags used too. White-blue-red was also used Russian Liberation Army (nazis).

The bear is also too detailed for a flag, which is rather, supposed to be simplistic. Just overall terrible.

Do you know why there is a red dragon on the welsh flag? It's like some secret among the welsh. It's because of Merlin, as in the wizard from the round table of king Arthur. Lord Vortigern,a warlord of the time, was attempting to build a castle in dinas emrys. The building works kept getting destroyed by mysterious forces so Vortigern sought advice from those with an understanding of magical forces. Merlin, a young magic half-ling at the time, told of two warring dragons that lived in the hill, one red and one white. Vortigern dug them out and they battled to the death and the red dragon won.

Actually even earlier than that, it is mentioned in the mabinogi that an ancient king imprisoned them there. That's less well known though. Most Welsh history is full of magic.
