Presentation of Ural

Ural (sensu lato) is the name of both a mountain range and a river, toghether forming the traditional northern border between Europe and Asia. Currently the russian government somewhat recognizes Ural as one of the top level “economic regions”, in which the first order divisions are aggregated, comprising Chelyabinsk Region, Kurgan Region, Orenburg Region, Perm Territory (including Parma), Bashkiria Sverdlovsk Region and Udmurtia.

Ural Republic (1992)

In beginning of 1990ies some regional leaders proposed autonomous republics. In that times Autonomous Republics had more rights and more budget than Regions (oblast) and Territories (kraj). People in Regions and Territories considered that this situation was unfair. Main figure in this process was A. Rossel, governor of Sverdlovsk Region. He proclaimed the Ural Republic with capital in Ekaterinburg on 1 july 1993. But official documents about this “proclamation” were not adopted. It was only a verbal act. After discussing with federal government all problems were resolved. Regions obtained equal rights with republics. And the “republican movement” finished. A. Rossel is governor of Sverdlovsk Region now. Analogous processes occured in many regions.

In 1992 or 1993 some regions self upgraded to constituent republics, and used ephemeral unofficial flags. One of the main republics was Ural Republic (Sverdlovsk, or Ekaterinenburg, region). Two flags were reported: black - yellow - green horizontal, and white - green - black horizontal.
Jaume Ollé, 15 Apr 2000

Did this self proclaimed Ural Republic consist only of Sverdlovsk Region? And what’s behind the existence of two different flags? Two factions of the republican movement, or did one replace the other?
