Project accepted in first reading at 9 sessions of 3rd convocation of the Soviet of Deputies of Lipetsk region on 26 December, 2002. Approved on 20 February, 2003.
Mikhail Revnivtsev, 23 Jul 2003

Unfortunately the governor put his veto to this design and a new flag had to be chosen. I say unfortunately because a rather original flag with its three stripes of white-green-orange has been replaced by a more common flag.
