Cabinet of Ministers eliminates dispute over vertical position of the state flag of Azerbaijan


The Cabinet of Ministers has eliminated the mistake made in October 29, 2013 resolution "On Amendments to the rules for lifting (hanging), lowering, storing and manufacturing the National Flag of the Republic of Azerbaijan", APA reports.

 

"On rules for lifting (hanging), lowering, storing and manufacturing the National Flag of the Republic of Azerbaijan" approved by the Cabinet of Ministers on March 25, 2005, reads that the flag is raised with the support of the poles or special fasteners and the blue strip of the flag should be directed to the top of the flag pole.

 

The flag may also be hanged without a pole. In this case, the flag should be tightly attached to the vertical plane and mounted to the horizontal appliance position in the horizontal position. The moon and star should look to the right.

 

Hanging the Azerbaijani state flag in a vertical position without a flagpole on the wall of the building, or attaching it by special holders are determined by the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers No. 317 of October 29, 2013 "On rules for lifting (hanging), lowering, storing and manufacturing the National Flag of the Republic of Azerbaijan". The decision notes that if the flag is hung on the building wall vertically and without a flagpole, then the blue flag strip should be on the left, and the crescent and the eight-pointed star are directed downwards.

 

However, in this case, returning the flag to the horizontal position, the placement of the strip and the crescent with the star will not comply with the rules. For example, if the flag displayed in this order is returned to the horizontal position counter-clockwise (from right to left), then not blue, and the green bar will be on top. If you return the flag posted in the vertical position to the horizontal position clockwise (from left to right), then the location of the bands is not violated. That is, the blue band will be located on top, the red bar on the middle, the green one on the bottom. However, in this case, the crescent is directed to the left, and not to the right. Both cases do not correspond to the rule of the location of the flag in a horizontal position.

This mistake has been corrected by the recent decision of the Cabinet of Ministers. In other words, according to the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers on 21 June 2018 "On Amendments to the rules for lifting (hanging), lowering, storing and manufacturing the National Flag of the Republic of Azerbaijan", the State Flag of the Republic of Azerbaijan is reflected vertically on the wall of the building by the green strip positioned on the left if looking in the opposite direction.

 

APA News Agency has published a study on June 5, 2018, on the mistake made in the October 29, 2013 decision of the Cabinet of Ministers "On Amendment to the rules for lifting (hanging), lowering, storing and manufacturing the National Flag of the Republic of Azerbaijan" , and also sent an appropriate request to the Cabinet of Ministers.
