Description:
Two vertical (equal) stripes - blue and white. In the blue field there is a demidiated white eagle with yellow beak and claw, red tongue and yellow crescent with trefoil on the breast. In the white field there is a (natural) lynx rampant, touching the margin of the stripe with its hand. In the chief of flag there are white mining tools bound together with a yellow ribbon  Ratio is 2 : 3.
It is (in fact) not stristly an armorial banner, becaude the Coat of Arms has blue background. This is a compromise between historical  flag and above mentioned Armorial banner. The former flag has the shield placed into the middle of bi-colour field (white over blue).
