The Law on flag was adopted by Moscow Regional Duma (decision #5/155) on 3
dec 1997, but the governor was against it. He did not signed the Law, and Law
did not took it into power. Flags were not made. On 9 march 1999 Governor (A.
S. Tyazhlov), after consultation with historicians, signed the Law at last (1,5
years later!!). After this date new flags were made and hoisted near buildings
of regional Duma and regional Administration.
