Russian Civil Defence

During the presidential election campaign in Russia earlier this summer, I noticed candidate Alexander Lebed being interviewed on TV in front of a couple of flags (hanging on the wall behind him). The first flag was the Russia white-blue-red with a large light blue canton (covering the two upper bands) containing a white star. In the centre of the star appeared a dark blue disk with a triangle in orange. The second flag consisted of the light blue canton only.

The blue circle with the orange triangle is the worldwide accepted symbol of civil defence.
