Proposals for a flag

On July 15th, 1998 Governor A. I. Lisitsyn signed Decision No458 On start a contest on best drawings of arms, standard and flag of the Yaroslavl Region — beginning the contest on best drawings of flag, coats of arms (after the descriptions, which are given in the Decision). In Addition to this Decision we read: «... description of the flag: rectangle field, three equal horizontal stripes: white at the top, yellow in the middle, dark-green at the bottom. Ratio — 2:3».
Victor Lomantsov, 31 Jan 2000 and 01 Mar 2001

So, the basic flag design was already prescribed in the contest announcement, which is peculiar, leaving not much artistical liberty to the flag designers... Anyway, the flag adopted in 2001 does not follow this prescription!

I received 3 images of the current proposals for a flag of Yaroslavl oblast. (These images were received in 3:4 ratio, even if the contest law prescribes 2:3!) The flag should be adopted in the next few days.

I’m still in contact with Mrs. Olga Demidova at Yaroslavl oblast website, but it seems that govt officials have actually other preoccupations than to choose a flag amongst the 3 proposals. (I’m waiting for the final decision since last Christmas!)

The description on the contest law matches proposal #1 So, which will it be? Was the flag adopted or not? And if so, when exactely?
António Martins, Feb 2001

We can still have some doubts on the adoption of this flag but one thing is sure, if it has not been adopted, I wonder why it is used as background image on the top of Yaroslavl website at (Warning: the server is quite slow and sometimes unreachable.)
