A nice Russian Navy Ensign, late XIX century. Has small breakdowns. The ensign was bought in 2000 in California from russian immigrants family Vasilec from Ukraine. Russian Navy Ensign is ensign of the Navy of the Russian Empire (from 1712 to 1918), the naval flag of the Russian Federation and the banner of the Navy of the Russian Federation (since 1992). St. Andrew's flag has a white background with two blue diagonal bands, forming a slanted cross, called St. Andrew's. The ratio of the flag's width to its length is 1 / 1.5, the width of the blue band is 1 / 10 the length of the flag. In 1698, Peter I the Great established the first Russian medal — the Order of St. Andrew, which is to be awarded for military exploits and the public service. When Peter I became a tsar, he started to device a flag of the Russian Navy. The symbolism of the flag is a tribute to his father, Alexey Mikhaylovich Romanov who first established a special flag for the first Russian naval vessel — three-masted frigate ‟Eagle”. From 1692 to 1712, Peter I personally drew eight flags projects that have consistently been taken into the Navy. Description of the flag's final version by Peter I: The flag is white, across it there is a blue St. Andrew's cross, whom he baptized Russia. After the Russian revolution, the Russian Navy Ensign was changed, but it was used by the White Army up to 1924. The flag of St. Andrew was reintroduced in the Russian Navy in 1992, and is still used today. Flag size: 146x105cm Frame size: 173x135cm
