Presentation

The Vepsians, also known as Veps, speak a language belonging to the Finno-Ugric branch of the Uralic language family. They live in the area south of Karelia, between the lakes Ladoga and Onega [in Leninigrad Region]. In the 1989 Soviet census, they were numbered at 12 501. The Vepsian flag is a green field with a blue cross with yellow borders. Andersson ([and92] and [and94]) does not mention this one.
Jan Oskar Engene, 20 Mar 1996

This flag, with medium blue, is listed under number 89 at the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] as: «Vepsians - North-West Russia».
