This one differ from the Previously Reported Standard.

The same flag with golden fringe, without the yellow things
near the border and with a dark blue field is shown in Album 2000
for the President at sea. I guess this version is for the
President on land, not shown in Album.

This Previously Reported Standard was made
a long time ago. Many these flags was made to presidential
And my friend from Ukraine V.Nerubenko saw it. Now in my site (http://www.vik-lomancov.narod.ru/ukraine/presid.htm) I have modernized image (source: post stamp of Ukraine) of real standard. Adopted 29 November 1999.

As far as I was aware, the reported presidential standard was
square (dark) blue with yellow trident and yellow fring on three
sides. Now I can't say that this light blue does not look good,
adding (what I believe is) oak leaves along the borders.
Just possibly, the dark blue version might be a naval flag while this more elaborated version might be kind of a car flag or otherwise for use on land. However, the UA president already have a naval rank flag in his capacity of commander-in-chief of UA armed forces (bicolour rectangle with dark blue shiled with trident).
