Flag revival of 1990

[Former flag of Chuktchia] image by António Martins, 18 Apr 2000

The flag of Free State of Cukotia (1921-22) was white, yellow and light blue (ratio 2:3) and in 1990 was provisionally readopted when republic status was self proclaimed (but Ratio 1:2).

What is Republic of Chukotka? It is a fiction, an anecdotic republic! This republic never existed. Neither it’s flags.

Flag in the "Aspirant" chart

Horizontal white, marroon red and medium blue, proportion 1:2. This flag is listed under number 131 at the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] as: «Chukotka (Palaeosiberians) - East Siberia».
Ivan Sache, 15 Sep 1999

The Free State of Chutkotka of the 1920’ies had a white, yellow and light blue flag. Could it be the same flag?… (By the way, calling Chuckchi "Palaeosiberians" is like calling english "North Sea West Germanics"…)

Uelen version

The flag of Chukotia according to the the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] was seen flying in Anadyr in September 1991. But because the previousely reported flag used was white, yellow and blue and because was also used a flag of white, dark red and black hoisted in Uelen, is probably a wrong observation.
Jaume Ollé, 15 Apr 2000

Provided that the blue was (very) dark, and not light, this white, dark red and black flag could be the same as the one seen in Anadyr in September 1991 and included in the Aspirant chart, so it might not be a wrong observation. (A question: What/where is Uelen? I couldn't find it in any of my russian and soviet atlases and directories.) And it strikes me that even the white, yellow and blue flag could be the same, provided that again the lower stripe was of a very dark blue, and the central stripe was a very dark yellow, easy to be confused with brown or to be replaced by brown during artisanal duplication.
