Flag of Ukraine, Ukrainian Flag

The Flag of Ukraine has two colors and was adopted in 1992. The blue and yellow colors of the Ukrainian Flag evoke the sky, the rivers, the mountains and the golden fields of Ukraine.

The two colors are arranged horizontally in an attempt to demystify the regional divisions defined vertically, between the east and west of the country.

These two colors, blue and yellow, are associated with the root of the national symbols of Ukraine since times before the introduction of Christianity, and nowadays are still used in traditional ceremonies as allegory to fire and water.
