Designer and top blogger Artemy Lebedev launched on Aug. 23 a contest in his blog to design a new flag of Russia:
“Why does the old one suck? First of all, the colors of a Russian flag are usually shit, as if specifically picked for cheap sportswear. Secondly, it’s always confused either with the French or the Dutch. Finally, it’s about time we rid ourselves of a flag that starts with white.”
Russia’s creative minds were up for the task with the dedication and self-depreciation of true Russians. Here are Bears & Vodka’s favourite picks. Enjoy.
