Railroad Flag

[Russian Railroad flag]
by António Martins, 14 Dec 1997

This one I've seen only once, flown from the rooftop pole of the main railway station building, in Kanas^, Chuvashia, in 1997.08.10. It consists of a “white ensign” like plain white field with the russian flag in the upper hoist and the railway logo gold in the lower fly. I've never seen this flag in any other railway permises in Russia before (but maybe it is flown only on sunny Sundays...) nor it is known by the general population. Russian railways are administered by the Transports Ministery (M.P.S. — Ministerstvo Putei~ Soobxenii~), along with every kind of roads and motorways, inland waterways (rivers and canals), civil navigation and civil aviation. This flag stands for the train (poezd) branch of that huge Ministery.

I saw this Russian Railroad (Rossiskyi~ Z^eleznyi~ Dorogiq) flag again, also on a sunday — this time in Moscow, hoisted in a large facility at Komsomol square, where three major railway stations (A^roslavskii~, Kazanhskii~ and Leningradskii~) are located.

Aeroflot flag

[Aeroflot flag]
by António Martins, 14 Dec 1997

This one I haven't actually seen, but it was discribed to my by a former airliner pilot. He was very proud that Aeroflot is the the only entity that keeps the serp i molet (hammer and sickle) on it's logo and described to me the flag to be like «that one you have sketched there», but light blue and with the Aeroflot logo in (dark) blue on the lower fly.
