August 22 Russia celebrates the Day of state flag. This year, the Russian tricolor turns 350 years. The first campaign under the tricolor flag has made the military ship “eagle” in 1669 during the reign of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich. The ship’s flag of the frigate, which had ensured the security of merchant shipping in the Caspian sea, became the progenitor of the modern Russian tricolor. 22 August 1991 the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR adopted as the national symbol’s historic Russian flag — the flag of equal horizontal white, azure, scarlet stripes. Since then, this day in Russia celebrated national flag Day.
