I am sure that this is purely coincidental, but the color scheme used by the Irkutsk State Technical University has a strong similarity to that of the Most Serene Republic of San Marino! The flag layout is different, but the shade of blue used on both flags seems very similar.

Kazan Federal University was formerly the Kazan State University.

The Kazan Imperial University was chartered in November 1804 by Emperor Alexander I. It was renamed in 1925 after Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin, who studied Law at the university. The status of Federal University was granted in 2010 by the Russian government.

Kazan University has been the place of major scientific breakthroughs. The Polish linguist Jan Niecislaw Baudouin de Courtenay (1845-1929) founded the Kazan Linguistic School, pioneering the study of oriental languages and cultures in Europe. The Baltic German chemist Karl Ernst Claus (1796-1864) discovered in 1844 a new chemical element that he named ruthenium (symbol, Ru; atomic number, 44), the Latin name of Russia. The mathematician Nikolai Lobachevsky (1792-1856), former Rector of the university, developed the non-Euclidean, hyperbolic geometry that would be named for him.

The Kazan Department of the Soviet Academy of Science was founded in Kazan in 1945 by physicists evacuated form Moscow and Leningrad, including Vitaly Ginzburg (1916-2009; Nobel Prize in Physics, 2003), Pyotr Kapitsa (1894-1984; Nobel Prize in Physics, 1978), Igor Tamm (1895-1971; Nobel Prize in Physics in 1958) and Lev Landau (1908-1968; Nobel Prize in Physics, 1962). Kazan State University was inscribed in 1996 to the Register of Cultural Heritage Sites of the Russian Federation. - University website

It has recently been renamed "Kazan (Volga region) Federal University" / Казанский (Приволжский) федеральный университет. The logo has changed accordingly and presumably the flag as well, if it is still in use.

Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky (1792-1856), Professor at the University of Kazan (1822), is best known for the formal definition and exploration of the non-Euclidian hyperbolic geometry. His views were so outrageously innovative that the venerable St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences refused the publication of his seminal paper "A concise outline of the foundations of geometry".

Mikhail Lomonosov Moscow State University

Московский государственный университет им. М. В. Ломоносова

from University website

Valentin Poposki has ferreted out the web site of Lomonosov Moscow State University, which has the university's flags. The url for the university is, and the site is multilingual. The site is very well designed and presented, and in fact if it were not for the .ru designator one might almost think that it belonged to one of those American universities which use MSU as an abbreviation, such as Michigan State University, Mississippi State University, Morehead State University (KY), etc.

image by Victor Lomantsov, 21 April 2014

When searching for informantion on the Russian Geographical Society I came across the following pictures and would like to know if this entity has different flag versions (variants) or if they are complimentary flags for its Departments (Divisions).
The flag reads "Underwater Research Group" and features a golden coat of arms.
