The previous flag (2005-2015) is described as follows: "A square cloth consisting of two horizontal stripes of blue and striped red. The ratio of the width of these bands is 1/2. In the blue strip laid crossed golden branches of laurel and grapes. Striped-red strip consists of two fields. In the hoist (it) is intersected 6 times by four red and three blue stripes. The field nearest to the bottom is red. In the center (there) is a
walking golden lion facing left (heraldically speaking)".

There also seemed to be a variant of this previous flag, featuring the basic red and blue colors, plus the lion, in a horizontal flag, equally divided into two stripes, the top being gold and the bottom being purple, as seen here in an image by Victor Lomantsov: (source:
