Description

The Moscow shape shield is divided by a vertical line. The right field is green and the left red. In the middle is the officer’s badge of the Preobrazhensky Regiment of the Royal Guards, approved on June 25, 1909.

Symbolism

The green and red fields and the officer’s badge symbolize one of the first regiments of the Russian regular army. It was established in 1687 and manned by poteshnye — teenagers recruited by Peter the Great for military training in the village of Preobrazhenskoye near Moscow, from which the regimental name was derived. The badge repeated Peter the Great’s drawing of St Andrew’s cross, gold on blue. Green and red also symbolize the regimental uniform — a red-trimmed dark green tunic.

Description

The flag of the Preobrazhenskoye Municipal District is a two-sided rectangle with a 2:3 width to length ratio.

The flag consists of two fields of equal size — green hoist and red fly.

Depicted in the centre is the officer’s badge of the Preobrazhensky Regiment of the Royal Guards, approved on June 25, 1909, with yellow and blue St Andrew’s cross. The size of the image is 1/2 of the flag’s length and 7/8 of itas width.
