The flag is horizontally divided white-blue-yellow-light blue,
with, in the middle, a circular emblem whose diameter equals the
height of two stripes (therefore stretching over the blue and
yellow stripes). The emblem shows the blue silhouettes of three
human beings on a yellow background, and is surrounding by the
writings, in Capital letters: KIEV COMMONWEALTH OF NATURISTS -
below the emblem, in blue letters [...] The equivalent in
Ukrainian - above the emblem, in yellow letters. The three
silhouettes on the emblem form a trident, which is, most
probably, not coincidental but a countercoloured reference to the
national symbol of Ukraine.

Not surprisingly at all. It seems to me that the central two
stripes are probably designed to deliberately echo Ukraine'
national colours and tryzub.
If I had to guess the actual maning behind the flag's colours (always risky, I know), it looks like the central stripes for Ukraine, with sky blue and white to represent the open sky - therefore, Ukraine naked under the sky ("sky-clad").
