Tyumen Region (including Yugra
and Yamal) was detached from
Omsk Region in 1944.08.14.
António Martins, 18 Mar 2000
Though the flag remains unchanged since May 1995, three laws were passed, with petty changes in terminology:
"Flag of Tyumen Region is a rectangular field consisted of three equal horizontal stripes; upper - white, medium - blue, lower - green; with a red"…"triangle in the left side (from the hoist) of the field. There are three crowns"…Law of 1996.03.26:
Makes alterations to “Law of Tyumen Region on Arms and Flag” (adopted by regional Duma 11.5.1995). The first paragraph of Article 9 of the Law now must be: "Flag of Tyumen Region is a rectangular field consisted of three equal horizontal stripes; upper - white, medium - blue, lower - green; with a red triangle near the hoist."The other two paragraphs of the article 9 (about antlers crowns and about ratio) were not changed.
ad implies that the Tyumen region flag has a lighter blue than the
Russian national flag.

The number of crowns reminds three subjects of the Russian federation:
Tyumen region, Khanty-Mansi autonomous district and Yamalo-Nenets
autonomous district.» [both Yugra and
Yamal are parts of Tyumen Region
Pascal Vagnat, 06 Apr 1998, quoting M. V. Revnivcev (Vexilologie 102 [vex])
We have noticed that the stylized antler crown that appears thrice on the flag
(and, once, in the arms) of Tyumen Region (Russia), shows also on the flag
of Yugra, a part of the said region (though
also considered to be a first order division).
The other such part, Yamalo-Nenetsia, also follows
this trend, though in a more discrete way: I just noticed that each element of
the white pattern on the Yamalo-Nenets flag is indeed a squarish representation
of that distinct Tyumen Crown.
And a question would be, of course, what’s the story behind this

It is interesting to note that of these three crowns on the Tyumen flag, one
is white (fimbriated yellow), standing for the Tyumen territory proper, and the
other two are yellow, standing for Yugra and
Yamal — however, in the flags of these two
subdivisions the same device shows in white.

The [former] flag of Tyumen is interesting too. According to the description and to
the official illustration the crown closest to the hoist should be silver
(white) with a wide golden (yellow) edge. The remaining two crowns are golden
Pascal Vagnat, 06 Apr 1998, quoting M. V. Revnivtsev (Vexilologie 102 [vex])
In 1992 or 1993 some regions self upgraded
to constituent republics, and
used ephemeral unofficial flags. One of the main republics was Tyumen,
flag with three horizontal stripes blue, white and blue and vertical red
stripe at hoist (blue reported as light blue).
Jaume Ollé, 15 Apr 2000
Again this design, now attributed to yet another region, after being
said to be the flag of Yamalo-Nenetsia
and Nenetsia… For the record,
Yamalo-Nenetsia is part of Tyumen Region, but that proves nothing.

I’m sure that this flag is a fiction. I don’t know who is
author… It was adopted never and existed never.
