Russian Federation Flag
White is the traditional color of peace and represents the yearning of the countrymen for unity, solidarity, enlightenment, and noble qualities of freedom and commitment to work.
The current Estonian flag was adopted on November 21, 1918, following the declaration of the country's independence from Russia. Estonia did not enjoy freedom for very long. In the summer of 1940, Russia invaded the country again and banned the Estonian flag. It was only on August 20, 1991, when Estonia regained its independence that the flag was reinstated as the national flag of Estonia.
