"Yamal" is a toponym, Yamal Peninsula, addded to the name of the territory to distinguish it from the previously created Nenetsia proper: Yamalo-Nenetsia was set up in 1930.

Description of the flag

I just noticed that each element of the white pattern on the yamalo-nenets flag is indeed a squarish representation of that distinct Tyumen Crown.

Former flag?

[Flag of Yamalo-Nenets]
by Zeljko Heimer, 22 Jul 1996

This flag, in medium blue, is listed under number 86 at the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] as: «Yamalo-Nenets (Yamals & Nenets) - North Russia».
Ivan Sache, 15 Sep 1999

Light blue - white - light blue horizontal tricolor with two concentric red rings centered on the middle stripe, which was almost certainly reported by Oleg Tarnovskii~ back in 1994 or 1995 and about which nobody could find any confirmation. (As usual with this gentleman’s “findings”.)
António Martins, 11 Mar 2000

Taymir has blue - white - blue flag and central device (two concentric red circles).

This flag is a fiction! I think it is a fantasy of O. Tarnovsky...
