Description of the flag

In Vexilologie 120 [vex] there is an article by Mikhail Revnivtsev about some Russian regional flags [rev01]. It says the flag ratio 2:3, all stripes are equally wide (i.e., the yellow hoist stripe = 2/9 of flag length), the soyombo emblem is dark blue (i.e., there are two different shades of blue!) and is simpler than that on the flag of Buryat Republic: the flame emblem is simple, drop-like. Symbols were adopted in 1996 (December 10).

All these three flags (Mongolia’s, Buryatia’s and Agin Buryatia's) show soyonboes.

According to Atlas Mira [mir00], the soyombo is identical to the one on the Buryatian flag (vertically elongated, and not “chubby”).

Former flag?

This flag is listed under number 124 at the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] as: «Agu”n Buryatia - South Siberia». With upper green and yellow stripes twice narrower than the lower green stripes. Might be erroneous, since Ust-Ordu”n Buryatia is represented with equal stripes in the chart.
Ivan Sache, 15 Sep 1999

Adopted Jun 12 1992.

Is any particular reason or reasons why those flag design pattern are that similar to each other?
