The Ruthenian flag of the Ruthenians of the World
(Transcarpathia, Slovakia, Hungary and the USA). I got this
information from Mrs Jozsefne Csepanyi-Bardos, the president of
the Ruhenian Ethnic Minority Council in Budapest Capital.
The Ruthenians are the settlers of Transcarpathia, and they are the majority there.

The UNPO has devoted a page with a flag at <www.unpo.org>
and info at <www.unpo.org/member/rusyn/rusyn.html>.
So far I've only seen the flag at the UNPO-site.

The Coat of Arms by no sheer coincidence is very close
to Transcarpathia Oblast. However, the Rusyn flag was reported as
2:1:1 horizontal bleu-white-maroon.
My guess that someone decided that the Rutherians need flag (without knowledge of the existing one), and what is more probable than placing the traditional Transcarpathian CoA on the UA colors ?

The flag as shown on the UNPO page does display the arms which
also was part of the arms of Czechoslovakia in the time between
the world wars.
