On 29 March 1997, A.Lukashenko signed a bill "About the Standard of the President of Republic of Belarus". Standard
will be the copy of Belarus State flag, adopted at May 1995
referendum but with some new details. On the small flag-pole
there will be reeved a silver cramp with engraved family name,
first name and father's name of the president. In the center of
the flag will be the golden image of state coat of arms. The flag
will be fringed in gold. The standard will be at the office of
the president. Copy of the flag will be hoisted over the
presidential residence in Minsk, over other residences where the
president will stay temporarely and will be placed on all the
president's means of transportation.

With the arms of Belarus that Željko sent, I was able to
composite a flag Isaw on Ukrainian television by a local outlet
here, of the Belarus presidential flag, which I saw on his car on
the tv footage.

In reference to the Belarus President's flag: The FRC says the
proportions should be 10:12 and that the arms should be only
slightly overlapping the green stripe.

On the Belarus' president standart is coat of arms only in
gold (not color), so the star de facto has a gold border. The
president standart (prop. 5:6) was hoisted 3.7.1997 on 9.00 a.m.

Yesterday, I saw President Lukashenko's speech in front of a
huge Belarus flag in the Parliament. This flag, probably the most
official of all Belarus flags, is slightly different from the
usual pictures. The red pattern in the white field is edged by
two narrow white vertical stripes; in other words, the national
ornament does not reach hoist and fly margins of the white field.

When being in the capital of Minsk (Miensk) some days ago I
noticed a special version of the official flag hoisted above
President Lukashenka's residence in Karl-Marx-Street. It
displayed in addition to the design of the Republic's flag in its
centre the golden outlined emblem of the Republic. I suppose it
to be the presidential flag (unfortunately a grim looking
militia-man kept me from taking a picture there).

Concering Album 2000 [pay00] -
President of the Republic (1:1) - The flag is of the same design
as the national flag, defaced with
golden-lined Coat of Arms (height of the Coat of Arms is approximately (?) 1/2 of the hoist). The caption indicates square flag, but the figure is made as 5:6. The flag have golden fring on three sides (though, I believe that Album could have the fringe looking more like one and not like yellow border). The image above seems to imply that 5:6 ratio is undisputed, so maybe 1:1 above is just an

In a photo found s on
Yahoo News and can be also found at Lukashenko's official website, one can see the current Belarussian
President, Alexander Lukashenko. The flag is like the national
flag, including the ornament, with the same colors. The
flag is in a ratio of 5:6, defaced with the Belarus Coat of Arms
on it. The Coat of Arms is drawn in gold, but I do not know
if the flowers are drawn in their natural colors.

I have only the reconstruction (!) of Belorussian presidential
flag at my site <www.vik-lomancov.narod.ru>.
I have no foto (and I never had it...). 5:6 - official ratio of the presidential flag .

Photo of this flag is at <www.president.gov.by>.
Notice how the arms is presented. It is a golden outline of
the arms, and the parts that are not golden, they are red.

German TV ZDF showed the Belarus parliament. There are two
flags. One the normal national flag (red-green with ornaments),
second is the national flag with the Coat of Arms in gold in the
middle. Its ratio was the same as the national flag, so it is
different from the reported presidental flag. Note also that the
Coat of Arms is not coloured like the presidental flag above, but

For my image I use the known ratio of 1:1,2, but the standard
looks like much longer...
