I have a foto from Conference of Ukrainian Heraldry Society: man holding the paper with analogous image. The foto is very small, but all stars around the shield look like white.

On 9 November 2001, I sent an image of the flag of Lugans'k oblast. Later Victor Lomantsov expressed a doubt about the colors of the stars.
Today I stumbled across the page about the flag of Lugans'k oblast on the regional server available at <oblrada.lg.ua> and theimage there also shows stars yellow and white.
I think that, from the information above, we can defintely conclude that the stars and yellow and white.

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"There is cobalt rectangular with side ratio 100X165 cm. (1:1.5). In the left-top quarter is sircle with radius of 20cm. The circle's center is on 49cm. from left side and 39cm. from top side. On the sircle are 17 yellow and 14 white stars with 4cm. side. It means 17 regions and 14 cities of oblast.. In the center of the circle there is little oblast emblem".
