Kuban Tricolour Flag: Sacred Object of Historical Heritage

Kuban Tricolour Flag: Sacred Object of Historical Heritage

Krasnodar, 28 February – Yug Times. On February 23, 1919, the Legislative Rada (Council) of the Kuban People’s Republic adopted, and Kuban Cossack Host Ataman Alexander Filimonov approved the resolution about the Kuban national flag - a blue-crimson-green tricolour. Since then, this combination of colours, quite unusual for Russia, enables to identify the Kuban region. The Kuban flag is really a sacred object of the region’s historical heritage.

In 1989, hereditary Kuban Cossack Fedor Bunin and his friend Aleksandr Berlizov registered the first Cossack organisation in the region - the Kuban Cossack Club. This year, the Cossacks will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Club. Later in 1989, a delegation from the Kuban region took part in the constituent congress of the Union of Cossacks in Moscow. Of course, the Kuban organisation needed the insignia to stress the continuity between the past and the present. The flag and the anthem of the Kuban Rada perfectly fitted the idea.

“I sewed this flag with my sewing-machine,” Fedor Bunin recalls. “There were problems with the cloth: nobody could find crimson fabric. I am not a tailor, but I did it in three hours or so. It was a large flag: two metres per one and a half.”

Currently the Kuban Cossack Host has another official flag, but the first flag is kept at the Host headquarters at 10, Rashpilevskaya street in Krasnodar. The hundredth anniversary of the Kuban flag was celebrated last Saturday at Tetralnaya square of the Kuban capital. “It’s good that the regional flag has the colours of the [historical] Kuban Rada,” deputy chairman of the city’s Civic Chamber Igor Kolomiytsev said. “These are the traditional Kuban colours; they originated in the olden days. The flag is a phenomenon that unites people into a team, a nation. It makes us Kuban people, reminds of our common history, and gives us understanding that all our ancestors lived in this land and tried to make it better. They defended it. The flag is the core of our self-identification.”
