My friend from Ukraine I. Lykov have sent me description of
Presidential Standard of Ukraine (published in 1999, adoption
date unknown). Square blue flag with yellow emblem, gold fringe.

The same flag with golden fringe, without the yellow things
near the border and with a dark blue field is shown in Album 2000
for the President at sea. I guess this version is for the
President on land, not shown in Album.

This previously reported standard was made a long time ago.
Many of these flags was made to presidential election.
And my friend from Ukraine V. Nerubenko saw it. Now in my site (<www.vexillographia.ru>) I have modernized image (source: post stamp of Ukraine) of real standard. Adopted 29 November 1999.

As far as I was aware, the reported presidential standard was
square (dark) blue with yellow trident and yellow fring on three
sides. Now I can't say that this light blue does not look good,
adding (what I believe is) oak leaves along the borders.
Just possibly, the dark blue version might be a naval flag while this more elaborated version might be kind of a car flag or otherwise for use on land. However, the UA president already have a naval rank flag in his capacity of commander-in-chief of UA armed forces (bicolour rectangle with dark blue shield with trident).

The Flag (Standard) of the President of Ukraine is a square
blue banner with a gold symbol of Volodymyr the Great's State
(the Small State Coat of Arms of Ukraine). The banner has a gold
ornament along its borders and is decorated with a gold fringe.
The staff of the Flag (Standard) of the President of Ukraine is
wooden with a round onyx top decorated with an embossed lay-on
ornament made of yellow metal.

According to L'Album 2000 [pay00]
- President of the Republic (on land) (1:1) - Blue square flag
with yellow border (these are not fringes!) on three outer edges
and yellow trident symbol in the middle.
This flag is presumably used in parallel with the light blue flag with yellow leaves (the latter might be used only in special occasions, or it may be a unique standard OSLT).
