The flag of the town of Khanty-Mansiysk is a rectangular width divided
into the three equal stripes horizontally (the upper stripe is blue; the
central stripe is white; the lower stripe is green) with the element in the
left upper part of the composition representing the white bird (white crane)
with the outspread wings taken from the emblem of the town of Khanty-Mansiysk.
Against the blue background above the white bird there are three white flakes
of snow. The ratio of the height of the flag (staff) to the total length is
1:2. The ratio of the distance from the staff to the geometric centre of the
image of the white bird, the width and height of the image of the white bird
is respectively 3 : 4,11 : 40,1 : 8. With the vertical location (handing up,
reproduction) of the flag the blue stripe is located to the left from a
spectator. The symbology of the flag of the town reproduces the symbology
of the emblem of the town.

On Heraldica’s website,
a new flag for Kanthy-Mansiysk city is reported in December
2002 and the description in Russian seems to agree with the flag I’ve
seen (on TV) in the 2003 biathlon world championships in Khanty-Mansiysk.
