Presentation of Siberia

"Siberia" usually refers to the asian part of Russia, sensu strictu not including the Russian Far-East, on the pacific rim. Currently the russian government somewhat recognizes Siberia as two of the level “economic regions”, in which the first order divisions are aggregated: Western Siberia is made up of Altay, Altay Territory, Kemerovo Region, Novosibirsk Region, Omsk Region, Tomsk Region and Tyumen Region (including Yugra and Yamal); while Eastern Siberia is made up of Buriatia, Chita Region (including Agin Buriatia), Irkutsk Region (including Ust-Ord Buriatia) Khakassia, Krasnoyarsk Territory (including Evenkia and Taymyr) and Tuva. The Far East economic region, also a part of Siberia (sensu lato), is made up of Amur Territory, Chukotka, Jewish Autonomous Region, Kamchatka Region (including Koryakia), Khabarovsk Territory, Magadan Region, Maritime Territory, Sakhalina Territory and Yakutia.

White and green are the traditional siberian colours since approx. 1918
Victor Lomantsov, 11 Apr 2000

Various official republics within the Siberian region, as well as a number of unofficial groupings, have adopted flags in the traditional Siberian colours of white over green. This colour combination forms the basis of a distinctive “family” of flags, just as red, white and blue stripes are associated with the Slavs and red, green, yellow and/or black form the pan-African colours. In its “pure” form, the white over green flag is used by separatists. The colours stand for the the snows and the taiga (forests) of Siberia and are believed to date back to 1865.
