Activists came up with a new flag for Russia
Netizens began to actively distribute images and photos from the rallies with the new, as they say, Russian flag – white-blue-white, without a red stripe. So, the new banner is based on the flag of Veliky Novgorod – a democratic city-state – and does not have a “blood-red” stripe – a symbol of the wars unleashed by Russia.
The new flag was also published by Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino, who celebrated his 58th birthday that day. Thus, he expressed support for Ukraine.
