Vexillology is “the scientific and scholarly study of flag history and symbolism.”

A web site called Ukrainian Policy says, “most will likely see the [Novorossiyan] flag (right) for what it most ostensibly is: a near recreation of the American Confederate battle flag (left), a symbol which remains highly controversial in the United States and often associated with racism.

Yep.

Whatever it is, you don’t get new flags everyday so cheers to vexillologists and may you enjoy your eastern Ukrainian field day.
