Note the often use of serration lines in the familiar shape following the Yamalo-Nenetsian flag, itself a stylization of the antler crown found also in the flags of Yugra and Tyumen Region (the latter encompassing all this) and some other local flags.

A pretty colorful and handsome flag of Russia’s newest town: Gubkinskiy, located in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. Established in 1986, legalized in 1988.

Undoubtedly an yamalian flag, with the Tyumen’s “antler crown” motive stylized just like in the Yamal-Nenetsia aut. flag.

The symbol at top hoist reminds me of a petrochemical industry logo, which may be not far from the truth — this region being one of Russia’s main oil and gas extraction centers.

Tazovskiy county lyes high in the northern hemisphere, behind the Polar circle. Coordinates of the regional centre (urban type settlement Tazovskiy) are 67,5°N 78,6°E. The territory is made of peninsulas: Tazovskiy (a.k.a. Small Yamal), Gydan, Mamont, Yavaj; and islands: OleniY, Shokalskogo, Neupokoyeva, Velnitskogo and Damned islands. The area has 174 000 km2 with 16 300 inhabitants in five settlements, including 6200 in Tazovskiy city.

Taz-river basin natives call it the Tasu-Yam-yaha — the yellow large river. The Russian state arrived at Tazovskiy peninsula in the 16th century and set a sable fur trade post, soon ruined. Second settlement in 1883: factory Khalmer-S*d* (nenets for "tombs on hills") is founded. Soviet Russia, in December 10, 1930, creates Yamalo-Nenets national (later autonomous) district and within it Tazovskiy rajon with the centre in village Khalmer-S*d* — renamed Tazovskiy in 1949.
