"Yamal" is a toponym, Yamal Peninsula, addded to the name of the territory to distinguish it from the previously created Nenetsia proper: Yamalo-Nenetsia was set up in 1930.

Description of the flag

I just noticed that each element of the white pattern on the yamalo-nenets flag is indeed a squarish representation of that distinct Tyumen Crown.

This flag, in medium blue, is listed under number 86 at the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] as: «Yamalo-Nenets (Yamals & Nenets) - North Russia».
Ivan Sache, 15 Sep 1999

Light blue - white - light blue horizontal tricolor with two concentric red rings centered on the middle stripe, which was almost certainly reported by Oleg Tarnovskiĭ back in 1994 or 1995 and about which nobody could find any confirmation. (As usual with this gentleman’s “findings”.)
António Martins, 11 Mar 2000

Taymir has blue - white - blue flag and central device (two concentric red circles).

This flag is a fiction! I think it is a fantasy of O. Tarnovsky…
