History of the Ukrainian Flag

История Украинского Флага

Ukrainian traditionally called its flag "yellow-blue". Yellow-blue colors symbolized the Kiev State even before the Christianization of Russia.

On March 22, 1918, the yellow-and-blue flag was approved by the Central Rada.

The Ukrainian People's Republic had its flag precisely yellow and blue cloth (yellow strip at the top, blue below it).

It is this combination of colors, as V. Sergiychuk writes, "has established Mikhail Grushevsky with his high authority."

In fact, the colors of our flag have long symbolized the two main elements of nature and human existence - fire (yellow) and water (blue).

It is logical to assume that only the combination "yellow - above, blue - from below" reflects eternal symmetry - the divine harmony of these elements.

Otherwise, if we place them on the contrary, this will mean a violation of the world order, a catastrophe in which water extinguishes the fire ...

(It is very symbolic right now on the street Grushevsky seen confrontation between fire and water).

The symbolism of colors

Yellow symbolizes the Sun, Fire, Creator, God the Father and in general the Higher Spirituality.

Blue-blue symbolizes water, everything earthly and material.

The canons of iconography

Golden, yellow symbolizes the Creator, God the Father, the halos of God the Son and in general the Higher Spirituality.

The blue is all earthly, and also the freedom of choice, which the Creator endowed his creations in the hope that they will not abuse it.

The heads of the saints are always illuminated / enlightened by Halo (yellow or gold).

The laws of heraldry

Light color should be above dark.

The laws of metaphysics and sacred symbols

The ancestral (divine, heavenly, supermaterial, golden) must be above the material (human, created, blue-blue).


Guna of material nature in Sanskrit means "rope" or "quality".

The material world itself is woven from special fibers, like a carpet.

The three main types of yarn are the three gunas - sattva (goodness, goodness, virtue, conscience), rajas (passion, competition), tamas (ignorance, inertia).

Everything that surrounds us is under their influence: food, clothes, talk, relationships, studies, work, time, places, colors and life itself, too, under this influence.

Huns correspond to such colors:

  • Sattva - goodness - yellow.
  • Rajas - passion - red.
  • Tamas - ignorance is blue.

Feng Shui

Placement of the blue (will) over the yellow (wisdom) means the "Law of Decline", i.e. Progressive degradation, unhappiness, chaos.

While the reverse message of colors - yellow over blue means a harmonious combination of Heaven and Earth, male and female, strong and flexible, which promises development, prosperity, happiness.

The Book of Changes "i-Jin"

Blue top and yellow bottom, form hexagram "Pi" - one of the four worst combinations.

And decipher it like this: "Be vigilant and prudent. Do not take on an important matter, because it will not come true, rather than come true. Your environment does not understand you, you have no reason to quarrel with your friends. "

When the yellow is located at the top, and the blue below, forms a completely different hexagram, "Tai", which means: "Blossoming. The little one leaves. A great one comes. Happiness. Development".

Aryan Tradition

Rama chose with his sacral symbol a yellow-blue standard.

Because it means a harmonious combination of heavenly fire (RA) and terrestrial matter (AI).

It also demonstrates the natural superiority of the spirit (golden, yellow) over matter (blue, blue).

While the arrangement of colors to the exact opposite, among other things, also distorts the holy name of Rama to Mara (a ghost, a ghost, or a zombie, in a modern way).

Eastern philosophy of "Yan-Yin"

Yellow, or golden Yang means "light, heat, sky, activity, male principle, the sun."

But blue Yin symbolizes darkness, cold, earth, passivity, female element, month.

What happens when the earthly and the passive dominates (ie is placed above) above the heavenly and active, perhaps, to explain unnecessarily.


The order of placing the colors of the rainbow is at the top of the yellow lower blue.

Igor Nochnik said that "the current blue and yellow National Flag of Ukraine does not promise her anything good, since she declares the perverse dominance of passive matter over an active spirit.

Although, I must say, it exactly corresponds to the current temporary state of degradation and spiritual darkness in Ukraine. "

And this state resulted in the adoption of a distorted symbol instead of the correct one.

We even on a subconscious level call our flag not blue-yellow, but "yellow-blue".

And its meaning is this: the golden color is the color of the Sun, the Cosmos.

Cosmic energy then through the yellow color freely passes to the blue Earth - the color of the planet, which can be seen from space.

Astronauts confirm this unequivocally, that our planet Earth - has a blue color.

That is, the Sun is always golden from above, and the Earth is water below.

Who shares the profane, banal and empirical version that the Ukrainian flag - that is, the clear sky above the golden ears - now think that the real Ukrainian flag - that is, the sun over the Dnieper water, in which the ancient Rus-Ukraine was baptized.
