Russian NAVY St. Andrew's Flag. 90 x 135 cm. (35 x 53 inches). The design of the flag was drawn personally by Peter I in 1692. A blue cross is drawn on the white background of the main panel. Creating a sketch of the flag, Peter I paid tribute to the memory of his father, Alexei Mikhailovich, and, remembering Andrew the First-Called, the apostle whom Christ called first. The development of the power of the Russian navy also falls on the years of the reign of Peter the Great, who brought Russia to the Baltic Sea to Europe. St. Andrew's flag still remains the main naval one, but there was a period when it was removed from the fleet and undeservedly forgotten. But justice prevailed and on January 17, 1992, a resolution was adopted on his return.
