[Khanty-Mansiysk city flag]
by Pascal Gross, 12 Dec 2000

At http://www.hmao.wsnet.ru/capital/flag.htm we can see the flag of Khanty-Mansiysk, capital city of Khanti-Mansy autonomous okrug. The image of the arms is available at http://www.hmao.wsnet.ru/capital/gerb.htm.
Pascal Gross, 12 Dec 2000

The flag of the town of Khanty-Mansiysk is a rectangular width divided into the three equal stripes horizontally (the upper stripe is blue; the central stripe is white; the lower stripe is green) with the element in the left upper part of the composition representing the white bird (white crane) with the outspread wings taken from the emblem of the town of Khanty-Mansiysk. Against the blue background above the white bird there are three white flakes of snow. The ratio of the height of the flag (staff) to the total length is 1:2. The ratio of the distance from the staff to the geometric centre of the image of the white bird, the width and height of the image of the white bird is respectively 3 : 4,11 : 40,1 : 8. With the vertical location (handing up, reproduction) of the flag the blue stripe is located to the left from a spectator. The symbology of the flag of the town reproduces the symbology of the emblem of the town.

Surgut city
(Сургут, a county-status city)

[Surgut city flag]
by António Martins, 01 Nov 2000 | [reconstruction]

My father just returned from a trip to Siberia and I might have some info on flags in Surgut region. Surgut is a city in Khanty-Mansi AO, on bands of river Ob, founded some 400 years ago as military outpost, but later on almost abandoned until it were found rich sources or natural gas and oil in the region. According to my father, the flag of the city is red with the coat of arms in the middle. However, there was no time to notice any details regarding it, as weather the ornament around the shield is used, the relative size of the coat of arms in flag etc.
Zeljko Heimer, 12 Jul 2000

I think this reconstruction (without ribbons and crown) is correct. The original arms of Surgut (adopted 1785) were without ribbons and crown too.

Coat of arms

The coat of arms of Surgut is recorded by N. N. Speransov [spe74] being divided horizontally, in chief the arms of Tobolsk, and in base in golden a fox proper running over a green base. The Tobolsk arms are blue with a golden “piramid” flanked with six red flags and two helebards. It is used in quite many of Russian coats of arms of the same period (cf. city of Omsk).
Zeljko Heimer, 12 Jul 2000

The coat of arms of Surgut was adopted in March 17th 1785. The fox in bottom part of the shield is really “proper”, but not the usual (orange) fox, it’s rather a silver fox — very beautiful animal with black fur.
Victor Lomantsov, 12 Jul 2000 and 07 Oct 2000

The image at http://www.surgut.ru/history.htm shows an orange animal, but it would not be the first zoological incorrection of the moscuvite heraldic authorities when dealing with siberian and far-eastern motifs...
