The law of an autonomous district from July 6, 2001 #205 resized the
specification statement of a flag in a paper 7. The modern flag consists
of three equal vertical stripes — blue, yellow and white. On a blue stripe
a yellow emblem Soymbo overhead is figured. The top Soymbo is apart 1/20
parts of width of a flag from the upper edge of a flag. The altitude
Soymbo compounds 1/3 parts of width of a flag, diameter of a circle (sun)
compounds 1/6 parts of width of a flag. The ratio of width of a flag to
his length is equal 2:3. The designer of a flag — Bato Dampilon |
Дампилон (a Buryat).

yellow hoist stripe = 2/9 of flag length), the soyombo emblem is dark
blue (i.e., there are two different shades of blue!) and is simpler
than that on the flag of Buryat Republic: the flame emblem is simple,
drop-like. Symbols were adopted in 1996 (December 10).

the flag was hoisted for the first time 11th December 1996 in Aginskoye.
The flag is described in Article 7 of the Law — indeed, the soyombo
should be dark blue, flag ratio 2:3 (yellow color stands for lamaism).

This flag is listed under number 124 at the chart Flags
of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] as:
«Agu”n Buryatia - South Siberia». With upper green and yellow
stripes twice narrower than the lower green stripes. Might be
erroneous, since Ust-Ordu”n Buryatia
