The Flag

Official flag and Coat of Arms of Kherson oblast have been adopted on October 25, 2001. Images of both symbols can be seen at <www.reporter.kherson.ua>. A contest was launched six months earlier and about 70 proposals have
been sent. You can see some of them at <www.reporter.kherson.ua/gerb_exgib.php>.
Proposals seem not to have had much weight as Coat of Arms and flag are different from all these proposals.
Pascal Gross, 8 May 2002

Authors of flag: Sergei Sazonov, Yuri Schepelev.
Victor Lomantsov, 8 May 2002

Actually, I would say the finished product is based on the second image, which got 58 out of about 200 votes (the most of any of these proposals). It has been modified, but I wouldn't say it's totally different.
