I have a foto from Conference of Ukrainian Heraldry Society:
man holding the paper with analogous image. The foto is very
small, but all stars around the shield look like white.

On 9 November 2001, I sent an image of the flag of Lugans'k
oblast. Later Victor Lomantsov expressed a doubt about the colors
of the stars.
Today I stumbled across the page about the flag of Lugans'k oblast on the regional server available at <oblrada.lg.ua> and theimage there also shows stars yellow and white.
I think that, from the information above, we can defintely conclude that the stars and yellow and white.

The Lugansk People's Republic (Russian: Луганская народная республика) was an unrecognized republic, proclaimed on April 28 2014 by pro-Russian protesters.
The republic was, according to its pro-Russian founders, a sovereign country which was supposed to build relations with other countries in line with international law. They planed to confirm sovereignity at an oblast referendum. Long-range aim is the union of the other two people's republics (Donetsk, Kharkov) and the establishment of a sovereign state "Novorossija".
Lugansk Republic had a flag which is similar to flag of Donetsk Republic, but upper stripe is light blue, and the central shield on Russian silver eagle is a yellow shield taken from Lugansk COA depicting two black smokestacks with flames, supported by a black hammer right and left. Inscription is Lugansk Republic on light blue and red stripes.
