Chechnyan flag (2004) Several flags have been used by the supporters of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria. The most common of these is the green flag with the red and white stripes depicted on the right. Its proportions are approximately 3:5. The color scheme is green, white, red, white, green, with the upper two thirds of the flag in green and the remaining one third in white, red, white and green stripes of equal width. Another well known example is similar to this flag but has the country's coat of arms incorporated into the design. Each color is meant to sympbolize an aspect of the Chechen national character. Green is the color of Islam, red symbolizes the blood shed in the struggle for freedom and white represents the road to a bright future.[1] These flags were mainly used by supporters of Dzhokhar Dudayev, Aslan Maskhadov and their successors. Apart from these several other designs have been used by different factions of the independentist movement, and even single sides used different flags at the same time. #asia #cccp #Chechnya #flag #flags #islam #Republic_of_Ichkeria #rusija #russia #ussr
