Ukraine has a very interesting flag. According to legend, the flag of Ukraine is supposed to represent a cornfield under the blue sky.
The flag of Ukraine is a bicolor with yellow on the bottom and blue on the top.
The current color combination has its roots in the 12th-century flag of the Galicia–Volhynia kingdom. Officially, the flag was first used as a state flag in 1918 when it was officially adopted by the short-lived West Ukrainian People’s Republic and then used by the Ukrainian People’s Republic. - youngpioneertours
