The Russian flag was re-adopted in 1991 after being adopted in 1883 up to the Russian Revolution in 1917 when it was replaced. The design of the Russian flag is based on the flag of the Netherlands. The Russian flag has also inspired the flags of many Slavic nations of Europe, and the colours are often referred to as the pan-Slavic colours. There is no official meaning of the Russian flag but some Russians believe the following: In Russia the white symbolizes generosity and frankness; blue stands for loyalty, honesty and wisdom; red means courage, magnanimity and love. Many people also believe red represents Russian people, blue represents the Ukrainians, and white represents the Belo Russians.
