Flag of Ust'janskiy region of Arkhangelskaja Oblast',
Michael Simakov, 12 Jan 2000
These two bears make beer: There was great fair in the village Byestuzhyevo
(Bestuẑevo | Бестужево),
centre of Ustyanskij-Rayon. Each visitor (wheat-maker) handed over a part of
his wheat to make beer, which was distributed free-of-charge to all. Beer was
cooked in one large barrel. We see this barrel on the flag.
