Both symbols [flag and arms] have been adopted on December 27, 2001 during
a meeting of the deputees of the regional legislative assembly. The flag is
described having a red background with a camel (historical
symbol) and a yellow stripe symbolizing the Ural mountains, their beauty
and the richness of their subsoil.

According to this
article, the regional flag was first hoisted on April 4, 2002.

The depicted animal is clearly not the chimaera-like simargl
reportedly adopted in 1999.

The information on Chelyabinsk Region is very poor.
We know only that: In the end of 1999 the coat of arms
was adopted. It consists of flying lion with dog’s head
(named Simargl) and sables as supporters. The only
avaliable laws are about contest (Regulation on contest
and other not-interesting things).

In 1992 or 1993 some regions self upgraded to
constituent republics, and used ephemeral unofficial flags. One of the main
republics was Cheliabinsk, with flag blue - white - green.

I’m sure that this flag is a fiction. I don’t know who is
author... It was adopted never and existed never.

Would this have any thing to do with the (incorrect report of the)
current flag of neighbouring Bashkiria?...
