Country Name Ukraine.


Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is bordered by Russia to the east and northeast; Belarus to the north; Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary to the west; and Romania, Moldova, and the Black Sea to the south.



Reason for Naming the country

There are different hypotheses as to the etymology of the name Ukraine. According to the older widespread hypothesis, it means "borderland", while some more recent linguistic studies claim a different meaning: "homeland" or "region, country".


The first use of the current flag design was in 1848. The Flag of Ukraine was adopted on 28 January 1992. The flag of Ukraine is one of the most simplistic national flags in the world.

It consists of two equal horizontal stripes, a blue stripe at the top and

a yellow stripe at the bottom, the blue color represents peace, as well as the sky above the nation and the streams found throughout the country.

The yellow color represents prosperity and also wheat fields found throughout the country.

The colors blue and yellow have both held significant roles in the history of this nation. These colors were used prominently during the country’s fight for independence.
