The Flag

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"The rectangular dark blue panel is divided into two unequal parts by a horizontal white strip. At the centre of the top part located is the image of the initial letter of the city name. On a background of a yellow circle is the letter "K", looking like swallow, and also reminds a Sign of Volodymyr Great State. Swollow is symbol of heat and well-being, courage and endurance. A yellow circle means basis of city existence, source of material and spiritual values. The white strip is symbol of Dnipro, on which banks city stands".
Comments: Dnipro - Ukrainian name of main river in Ukraine ("Dnepr" in russian, "Nistru" in romanian). "Dark blue" colour used only in english text. Ukrainian page uses "blue" (sinij)
