The Flag

Orshanskiy Rayon and City of Orsha is a joint administrative-territorial entity. Its symbols were registered on 23.05.2002.
Valentin Poposki, 7 January 2020

The flag specifications are as follows; the bottom blue section is 1/4th of the flag's width with the other blue section being 1/4th of the bottom blue section. There is a similar sized gap between the two sections. The flag's ratio is not fully determined; sources debate between the state flag's ratio of 1:2 versus the "golden ratio" of 1:1.618 (shown above).
