Presentation of Ajaria

Name: Ajarian (or 'Adzharian') Autonomous Republic
Location: Georgia
Status: Constituent part of Georgia.
Notes: The Ajarian ASSR was created in 1921, largely for political reasons. Firstly, it prevented the Georgians from exercising full control over the port of Batumi, and served to encourage supposedly pro-communist elements amongst Ajaris (or 'Lazis') living on the Turkish side of the border.

Description of the flag

Both the flag and national emblem, as well as a national anthem, were adopted on 26 June 2000.

The dark blue colour of both flag and emblem should represent the Black Sea, on which Ajaria is located. The seven stars represent the 2 cities (Batumi and Kobuleti) and 5 districts (Batumi, Kobuleti, Keda, Shuakhevi, Khulo) of Ajaria, which appear in the Constitution of Ajaira (§5. Cities, Districts and Towns in the Ajaria Autonomous Republic).

Other reported flag

[Reported variant of the flag]by Ivan Sache

According to Nations Without States [mnh96], the Ajar national flag is different than the one shown above. The book describes the flag as green, with a narrow red border, and a white crescent and star in the center.
I caution that this book does not cite sources for its flag information.

The eagle is a symbol for freedom, power, application and care.
The two olive branches at the bottom of the emblem are a symbol of peace.

Union for the Democratic Revival ( Demokratiuli Agordsinebis Kavshiri)

[Flag of UDR]by Jens Pattke

"The flag of the Union is four-cornered in shape. Its colour is blue. It is the symbol of a sea country. In the upper left-hand corner of the flag on the background of cloudless blue sky there are twelve shining golden seven-pointed stars symbolising the unity of the historical parts of Georgia and of the regional structure of the state. The main idea represented by the flag is the revival of the regions and of the industrious mighty democratic state."

[Emblem of UDR]by Jens Pattke

" The emblem of the Union: Mountain eagle is the symbol of freedom, reason, mightiness and constant vigil. The eagle, which is the reliable guard of the country, looks proudly and confidently with its keen eyes into the boundless space, with its spread strong wings, which are the symbol of eternity and overall revival, it supports the life-giving Sun. The olive branches are the symbol of peace.

Inscription: Demokratiuli Agordsinebis Kavshiri (Union for the Democratic Revival), in Georgian alphabet.
