Ukraine's flag, with horizontal blue and yellow bars, is a significant emblem of the country's national identity and history. The color scheme of blue and yellow is thought to have developed during the 1848 Spring of Nations in Lemberg, which was then part of the Austrian Empire.
In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, the Ukrainian People's Republic, the West Ukrainian People's Republic, and the Ukrainian State first adopted the flag.
During the Soviet era, however, the usage of the flag was prohibited, and the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic's flag was used instead. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, however, the flag began to be used again, and the Ukrainian parliament officially accepted it on January 28, 1992.
The flag is significant to the country, and Ukraine has celebrated National Flag Day on August 23rd every year since 2004, to recognize the flag as an important symbol of the country's sovereignty and independence.
