State flag of the United States of Akkerman (Russian: Государственный флаг Соединённых Штатов Аккермана) is a national symbol of the Bessarabian micronation.

It was designed as local parody on flag of the United States of America.

History

Prototype of flag was invented in Summer of 2017, but was more similar to flag of Liberia because it used to have square canton with only one grape in it.

Actual version was created in November of the same year.

Design

Classical flag of the USA consists of dark purple canton with 20 grapes, and field with 9 red and yellow stripes. Each stripe means one of the first states of country, while quantity of grapes hasn't special meaning.

Colors of flag together with grapes are borrowed from official banner of Belgorod-Dnestrovskiy.

Aspect ratio

Official flag has only one legal proportion – 2:1.

Territory of micronation is located in Ukraine, which flag has proportion 3:2. Despite almost all manufactures make their flags in it, 3:2 aspect is almost unacceptable for Akkerman's flag as it is completely unsuitable for all flags with canton and stripes.
