This is the unofficial flag of the whole community of the Germans in Russia (Russlanddeutsche).
The Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, the Russian Empire and the Orthodox Byzantine Empire use the double-headed eagle as their heraldic animal
The double-headed eagle was also used on the flag of the German Confederation
From the point of view that the Russian Germans lived among the Germans, as well as among the Russians, the double-headed eagle corresponds to both traditions.
Progressively interpreted, it ideally symbolizes the people of the Russian Germans through the two heads.
One of its heads shows the German spirit, while the other reflects the Russian soul.
Colors black , yellow (gold) and white (silver):
1. the combination of the colors black and gold are characteristic of the German people. As the colors of the Habsburgs in Austria, as well as on ultimately in the German national colors. Among other things, the colors found their way into many German flags/coats of arms (Holy Roman Empire, German Confederation, Weimar Republic, etc.);
2. in the Russian Empire, the colors black and gold also became a symbol of the Russians. To this day Russian patriots use these colors and the flag of the Russian Empire (black-gold-silver) to refer to the tradition.
3. the combination of the colors black and white points to Prussia, where many ancestors of the Russian Germans originally came from.
Further characterization of the Russian-German people by the colors:
