I don't fully understand why there should be
a golden leopard on a golden coat
Dirk Schönberger, 31 Jan 2000
I have no information about the status of the plain
red flag with coat of arms but,
considering that the adoption date of the new flag is
28.04.99, one could guess that it was simply the
official flag until that date.

The flag of Wladimir oblast is very similar to the
Wladimir city: red with coat of arms in
center. The coat of arms is the crowned lion. Around
shield there’s a golden wreath with ribbon and above
shield there’s a imperial golden crown.
Jaume Ollé, 24 Apr 1999
According to Mr.
Arcady A. Petrov,
from the Vladimir oblast website, the ratio is 1:2.
