On 29 March 1997, A.Lukashenko signed a bill "About Standard of the President of Republic of Belarus". Standard will be the copy of Belarus State flag, adopted at May 1995 referendum but with some new details. On the small flag-pole there will be reeved a silver cramp with engraved family name, first name and father's name of the president. In the center of the flag will be the golden image of state coat of arms. The flag will be fringed in gold. The standard will be at the office of the president. Copy of the flag will be hoisted over the presidential residence in Minsk, over other residences where the president will stay temporarely and will be placed on all the president's means of transportation.

With the arms of Belarus that Zeljko sent, I was able to composite a flag Isaw on Ukrainian television by a local outlet here, of the Belarus presidential flag, which I saw on his car on the tv footage.

In reference to the Belarus President's flag: The FRC says the proportions should be 10:12 and that the arms should be only slightly overlapping the green stripe.

On the Belarus' president standart is coat of arms only in gold (not color), so the star de facto has a gold border. The president standart (prop. 5:6) was hoisted 3.7.1997 on 9.00 a.m.

Yesterday, I saw President Lukashenko's speech in front of a huge Belarus flag in the Parliament. This flag, probably the most official of all Belarus flags, is slightly different from the usual pictures. The red pattern in the white field is edged by two narrow white vertical stripes; in other words, the national ornament does not reach hoist and fly margins of the white field.

When being in the capital of Minsk (Miensk) some days ago I noticed a special version of the official flag hoisted above President Lukashenka's residence in Karl-Marx-Street. It displayed in addition to the design of the Republic's flag in its centre the golden outlined emblem of the Republic. I suppose it to be the presidential flag (unfortunately a grim looking militia-man kept me from taking a picture there).

Concering Album 2000 [pay00] - President of the Republic (1:1) - The flag is of the same design as the national flag, defaced with
golden-lined CoA (height of the CoA is approximately (?) 1/2 of the hoist). The caption indicates square flag, but the figure is made as 5:6. The flag have golden fring on three sides (though, I believe that Album could have the fringe looking more like one and not like yellow border). The image above seems to imply that 5:6 ratio is undisputed, so maybe 1:1 above is just an

In a photo found s on Yahoo News and can be also found at Lukashenko's official website, one can see the current Belarussian President, Alexander Lukashenko. The flag is like the national flag, including the ornament, with the same colors. The flag is in a ratio of 5:6, defaced with the Belarus CoA on it. The CoA is drawn in gold, but I do not know if the flowers are drawn in their natural colors.

I have only the reconstruction (!) of Belorussian presidential flag at my site <www.vik-lomancov.narod.ru>.
I have no foto (and I never had it...). 5:6 - official ratio of the presidential flag .
Victor Lomantsov, 2 November 2001
Photo of this flag is at <www.president.gov.by>. Notice how the arms is presented. It is a golden outline of the arms, and the parts that are not golden, they are red.

German TV ZDF showed the Belarus parliament. There are two flags. One the normal national flag (red-green with ornaments), second is the national flag with the Coat of Arms in gold in the middle. Its ratio was the same as the national flag, so it is different from the reported presidental flag. Note also that the Coat of Arms is not coloured like the presidental flag above, but gold.
