What is the Flag of Free Russia?
The white-blue-white flag is a symbol of free Russia. This flag was coined by the online community opposed to the Russian army’s invasion of Ukraine. The very next day after the first mention of it on Twitter, Russians abroad took to peaceful protests with a white-blue-white flag instead of the current Russian flag, stained with blood. This flag is the symbol of the peace movement.
Why is the new flag necessary?
The white-blue-red flag currently used by the government of the Russian Federation has become a symbol of blood, war and aggression throughout the world. We the people who do not support the authoritarian regime and the military, cannot use it anymore.
