Description of the flag

Russian party “Yabloko” uses a white flag with its logo on it, either with or without lettering. The logo is a pun on the party’s name, which can be interpreted as "Я" + "блоко", meaning "block Ya", from the party leader’s surname initial, Григорий Явлинский (Grigoriĭ Âvlinskiĭ); or as the word "яблоко" (âbloko), meaning "apple". The logo consists of a red circle crown (suggesting an apple) with a very thin green sector at NW (suggesting a leave).
