On 22 August 1991 above the White House in Moscow the three-coloured Russian flag was set up for the first time, replacing as a state symbol the red cloth with sickle and hummer.
On this day at the Special Session of the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR it was decided to consider "the cloth of... white, azure and red stripes" official national colours of Russia.
