Overview

As for the Border Guard Flag, since I live virtually adjacent to the State Border Committee Building and see the flag almost every day, I'd like to correct the design as follows: There should not be a blue shield around the trident, merely a gold trident on a white disk trimmed in gold. In both cases (trident and circle trim), the gold should be darker than the yellow used in the flag. As to the origin of the flag, I believe a similar design was used during the Soviet period (albeit with the Soviet flag as a canton). It would not be entirely surprising, then, that modern-day Ukraine would redesign the flag by simply changing the canton. Green was the color used by the border guard during the Soviet period (insignia, uniform trim, etc.), and Ukraine continues that practice.
Interestingly, while the general design follows its Soviet predecessor, the Ukrainians have introduced at least one detail reminiscent of their earlier independence. The Customs Service flag designed for used when Ukraine was independent in 1918-1921 was white (not green) with a blue-yellow state flag in the canton and a trident on white disk. Had the modern-day Ukrainian state merely wished to copy the previous Soviet design, they would have simply inserted the state flag in the canton, but without the trident since the state flag does not feature the trident.

Recently the flag of the border guard of Ukranie was changed. The new flag reminding very much to the obe of the independentist party of Taiwan (green, with double white cross).
Jaume Olle' , 6 November 1999

Some weeks ago I reported that Ukranie Border Guard adopted new ensign. Information was provided by Andre Rukkas that casually visited the headquartes. Image was already inclose in the issue 14 of Flag Report (currently in print). When Andrew visited the hedquarters the new flag don't are hoisted yet.
