Borisoglebskiy county

[Borisoglebsk flag]

Flag of Borisoglebsk municipal district of Yaroslavl region.
Jaume Ollé, 23 Jan 2000

In Yaroslavl’ region there is a (county subject) city named Borisoglyebskiy (Borisoglebskiĭ | Борисоглебский), but in Voronezh region there is a (county-status) city named Borisoglyebsk (Borisoglebsk | Борисоглебск). I’d like to be sure which is which.

The flag shows the princes Boris and Gleb (from whom the city was named), the two “good” sons of Vladimir, the first christian king of Russia. They show on this flag in their usual outfits: Boris beared and riding a black horse, dressed in green and with red mantle, boots and flag; Gleb shaved and riding a red horse, dressed in red and with green mantle, boots and flag (or is it the other way around?). This is the way these two are shown on old religious paintings (icons).

Boris and Gleb were murdered by a brother of the other sort, and are considered saints.

Yaroslavl’ city

[Yaroslavl’ flag]
by Pascal Gross, 26 Aug 2001

At http://www.city.yar.ru/sam/8.html, we can see all the symbols of this city including flag and arms.
Pascal Gross, 26 Aug 2001

It is the same symbolism (actually the same coat of arms — in its heraldic essence) as in the regional flag and arms.
