Kamianets-Podilskyi - Ukraine's national colours

The flag of Ukraine is a banner of two equally sized horizontal bands of blue and yellow.
In summer in rural areas you will be able to see these colours in natural elements. There are a lot of sunflower fields in Ukraine and the skies were often blue when I was there.

As a national flag, the blue and yellow bicolour has been officially used since the 1848 Spring of Nations when it was hoisted over the Lviv Rathaus. It was officially adopted as a state flag for the first time in 1918 by the short-lived West Ukrainian People's Republic, and subsequently used by the Ukrainian People's Republic.
When Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union, the flag was outlawed.
The blue and yellow flag was provisionally adopted for official ceremonies in September 1991 following Ukrainian independence, before finally officially being restored on 28 January 1992 by the parliament of Ukraine.
