The flag of the Krasnodar territory is horizontally
blue over purple over green, the central stripe being
double of each of the two others, the arms of the
territory over all in the middle. The coat of arms is a
bit complicated and is quite the same than the historical
coa of the former
territory of Kuban.
The flag was adopted on the first of June 1995.

The middle stripe should be red-raspberry. It is
difficult to know exactly to what corresponds this
colour. Jiri Tenora says that this colour is either
dark red (R+) or purple (P). He says that this is
malinorot (from Russian malina, raspberry
+ German Rot, red), the typical colour of the
East German Civil Defence.

I’ve just saw the Mayor of Soĉi on TV; behind him, the russian
national flag and the regional flag of Krasnodar: I can confirm the light
reddish purple malinorot, the medium dark green of the bottom stripe,
and this greyish/lightish sort of blue.

The coat of arms on the flag is all golden with
black fimbriations according to the Law of the
Territory of Krasnodar on the symbols of the Territory
of Krasnodar (4th April 1995). According to Jiri Tenora,
the colour form of the coat
of arms is only to be found in the Legislative Assembly
and official publications. Everywhere else (shops, means
of transport, et c…), it is golden. The height of
the coat of arms on the flag is ca. 3:4 the height
of the flag.

One of the elements of the coat of arms is a
пернач | pernaĉ,
a kind of cossack sceptre.

I found in the web an image of the flag of Krasnodar,
but without the arms in the center.

This flag, with medium blue bottom stripe, is listed under number

Anapa is on the site of the old Greek colony Gorgippia, hence the ancient ship (trireme?). Quoting from Webster’s New Geographical Dictionary (1988):
Anapa is a seaport on the Black Sea coast, formerly a Turkish fortress founded to maintain Turkish relations with Caucasian region 1781; twice captured and restored by Russia, finally remained Russian by terms of Treaty of Adrianople, 1829.Jarig Bakker, 12 Feb 2000
Our colleaque Jens Pattke (Frankfurt/Oder, Germany) has drawn gifFOTWized-images of flag and coat of arms of the city-municipality of Armavir in the Kray of Krasnodar (Russian Federation). On October, 20, 2005 by the Decision number 103 the municipal Duma (council) of Armavir has adopted a flag and coat of arms of city-municipality of Armavir. The flag is s.c. armorial flag and occurs (repeats) the coat of arms of city. In 1839 on the left coast of the Kuban river at a confluence of her the Urup river have been moved mountain Armenians (resettlement of Armenians in mountains of Northern Caucasus began at the end of XIV century, after wreck Armenian Kilikia Kingdom). Crossing of two blue strips on a flag and CoA shows a place of merge of two rivers near to which the city has been founded. In 1848 to this Armenian settlement name *Armavir* has been given, in honour of ancient capital of Great Armenia in 4-2 centuries B.C. Armavir quickly developed, in 1876 became status of village, and in 1914 under the decree of emperor has been transformed into city. The greatest development has manufacture of sunflower oil, on which scales Armavir has borrowed leading position in all Russian Empire. Therefore development of the industry is reflected in a flag and CoA by a flower of sunflower. The sunflower - a symbol of a prosperity, prosperity, heat and peace. The peace and consent, in which during all history of Armavir in him representatives more than eighty nationalities live, it is displayed in a flag and CoA white (silver) cadux. The cadux - is a ancient emblem of peaceful disposition becoming subsequently a traditional symbol of trade and crafts, also displays the commerce advanced in city and the industry.
