Learn About Belarus

Belarus, or Republic of Belarus, is a land-locked country in Eastern Europe. Belarus has been independent from the Soviet Union since 1991.

  • One third of Belarus is covered in forest
  • The name Belarus means White Russian
  • Belarus has a population of just under 10 million people, 70% living in urban areas.
  • The Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986 took a heavy toll on Belarus. Although the nuclear plant was just south of Belarus, in the Ukraine, 70% of the radiation fell onto Belarus territory. About 25% of the land is still regarded as uninhabitable.

About the Belarusian Flag

Belarus Flag Printables

The Belarusian flag is made up of two horizontal stripes, with a wider red stripe at the top and a thinner green one at the bottom. There is a traditional Belarusian red and white pattern in a strip down the left side, and this pattern is also often used to decorate folk costumes. The national flag of Belarus was formally changed on June 7, 1995, following a referendum voted on by the Belarusian people.
