Uralic flag, Finno-Ugric flag

uflag.org/

this is a flag consisting of elements of some Finno-Ugric nations' flags: Hungarian [red-white-green tricolore], Finnish [off-centered "Scandinavian" cross, blue stripes] and Udmurt [the central "toleź" symbol, black-white-red tricolore].


you may be also interested in seeing my other finno-ugric art:

"u-f" Finno-Ugric logo,
logo of ФИННО-УГОРСКИЙ ЛЕКТОРИЙ,
official logo of Uralistica web community
"эше" logo,
Finno-Ugric language tree logo,
śaśka - Udmurt flower logo [and another version]

and my posters:

Estonian day at the Warsaw University
presentation of photos from Mordovia

check also a version with the "toleź" changing its colour [just for fun].
i couldn't decide if it should be red [like on the flag of Udmurtia] or blue [a pan-Finnic colour].

8-pointed red star- it's ancient symbol of Slavic- Aryan ...!

yes, it has many meanings, but i think it's used most prominently by Finno-Ugric peoples. i don't know any Slavic nation using the 8-pointed star as their main national emblem, like Finno-Ugric nations do [Udmurts, Mordvinians, Karelians].

Looks a little too busy for a flag to me. But it still looks awesome! :D

thanks! :) and i agree it's complicated, but originally it wasn't intended to represent the Finno-Ugric nations as a whole, but was just a mix of flags of some Finno-Ugric nations.

I love it! the "toleź" (muhu mänd/kaheksakand in estonian) is absolutely my favorite symbol! i'm thinking about getting it tattooed on my arm.

I think it looked better with a blue tolez... but it's some epic vexillology!
