One of the newest "localizations" of Italian peace flags was done in Estonia, by replacing Italian word PACE or English word PEACE with their Estonian counterpart RAHU. There are very few sources for these flags, the earliest of those dating from 2012, which suggests that the flag was created not much earlier. Other sources date [this flag] from 2014; the photo they display (the same for both) displays the flags with different color shades from those in the 2012 photo, which is much due to visibly different lighting conditions. The color pattern was the same in 2012 and 2014: purple, dark blue, light blue, green, yellow, orange and red, word RAHU being inscribed in white over light blue and green. As the 2014 photo provided a much more complete view of the flag, it served as the model for the flag image presented here, regarding the color shades. It shall be noted that in both occasions, the flag was used at the LGBT-related events - Tallinn Pride - which fits in the trend of increasing use of these flags at such events.
