State Flag presented to Hermitage Museum

The current versions of both the Russian Federation State Flag and the President's Standard were developed for the Cabinet of the President, Boris Yeltsin, in 1998, under the supervision of the State Herald. It was decided to present the superseded Flag and Standard for inclusion in the magnificent collection of such material held in the State Hermitage Museum.

On 29 June 1999, Boris Yeltsin presented the State Flag and Standard to Dr Mikhail Piotrovsky, Director of the State Hermitage Museum, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Art, and Georgy Vilinbakhov, First Deputy Director of the State Hermitage Museum, State Herald, Corresponding Member of the International Academy of Heraldry. On conclusion of the ceremony Dr Piotrovsky and Mr Vilinbakhov presented President Boris Yeltsin with a catalogue of works of art acquired by the Hermitage in accordance with a presidential decree of 12 June 1996 regarding the State Hermitage Museum and another of 30 May 1997 dealing with the enrichment of the Hermitage collections.
