Description of the flag

The fairily small town of Marinskii~ Posad, a municipality seat (rai~onyi~ centr) some 50 km east of Cheboksary. This flag is a 2:3 banner of the arms and both (flag and arms) were recently approved by the State Herald of the President of the Russian Federation, according to an article in Sovetskaa^ C^uvas^ia^ (1999.07.08). The arms are: on a “french” shield, azure, an imperial crown proper over a mountain (or whatever that is supposed to be...) argent; (very small) canton filled with chuvashian flag. The interesting note is that this canton, absent from the flag, by the way, is hatched with the petra sancta markings for purpure.
