The green flag with white saltire is the Customs Flag. It was adopted 3
december 1994 by presidential decree No 2152. This flag was
Customs Flag of imperial Russia since 1827.

Any construction details for russian saltires? These images
have them thinner than what I
have seen. I wander also about the shade of green (normal
or KGB’s very dark green?) and about the similarities between
this flag and the Border Guard ensign
(blue saltire with white fimbriation on green), considering
shades and dimensions..

As they say, the K.G.B. is now K.G.-used-to-B. But a new
organization was created (or better, a new name was attibuted…), the
F.S.B. — Federal Security Service. It uses a golden saltire on dark
green. Their coat of arms is two swords or per saltire on vert.

I saw recently on russian TV, right there on
the desk of some M.V.D. (russian police) big shot,
a table flaglet, crossed with that of Russia, white
with some kind of dark bordered round seal.
