United Russia Party Introduces ‘Straight Flag’ To Counter LGBT Flag

On July 8th, in response to the legalization of gay marriage in the United States, the “United Russia” political party introduced it’s own “Straight Flag” design. The flag illustrates a man, a woman and three children, holding hands.

Later, it turned out, that the flag design was “borrowed” from “La Manif Pour Tous”, the French non-profit organization, without their permission. According to experts, copyright infringement could cost 5 million rubles ($ 88,407).

In addition to the copyright scandal, the idea of “Straight Flag” fired up a strong reaction among the internet users in Russia. With the tag #NastoyaschayaSemya (#НастоящаяСемья), they created their own versions of the flag of family values.
