The Supreme Council of the Tatar Soviet Socialist Republic adopted the flag on 29 November 1991 in its present form.[1] It was designed by T.G. Khaziakhmetov.[2]

The colours represent the Tatar majority and the Russian minority.

  • The Red band symbolises the fight for happiness, bravery, and courage of the Tatar people.
  • The White band symbolises peace, concord and an honest future between the Tatars and the Russians.
  • The Green band symbolises hope, freedom, wealth and solidarity with Islam.[1]

Tatar nationalists such as the All-Tatar Public Center use a different flag, divided diagonally by red and green and containing a white star and crescent in the center.
