In the 1930’s, according to Paskov
a new flag was proposed for the East Karelian government. This was also a
Scandinavian cross flag, but this time much more close to the flag of Finland:
White field with a blue cross bordered in yellow. Apparently, this was not
adopted, because Paskov notes that the symbols, arms and flag,
adopted in 1920 are «still the
official symbol of Karelian organizations in Finland
up to the present and lately both symbols have become
current in Karelia too.», p. 343.
