Description of the flag

On 12 June I saw this flag on TV. At the centre of the flag is the Air Force's emblem — twoheads eagle with Órossed propeller and sword.
Nikolay Khimenkov, 13 Jun 2000

This image was made assuming that the background is gyronny of 28 pieces, being divided in equiangular “sectors” of approx. 13°. I further interpreted the image as having four rays touching each of the two vertical edges of the flag, which delivered the unusual ratio of ~12:25 — or rather 1 : sin(2pi/7).

Incorrect depiction

[Russian Air Force flag]
by António Martins and Steve Stringefellow, 16 May 2000

According to the “Russian Aviation Page” (image mirrowed here), the new Russian Air Force flag features a double-headed eagle (as appeares on the current Russian coat-of-arms) at the centre, and this flag has no sun-disc.

On 12 June I saw this flag on TV. The emblem at the centre of the flag is the Air Force's emblem, not Russia's coat-of-arms.

Previous flag

Since the end of the Soviet Union the Russian Air Force retained the previous flag, except that the hammer and sickle (but not the red star!) was removed.
