The proposed flag of the defunct self-proclaimed confederation of Novorossiya (New Russia) is a variant of the battle flag which was adopted on 24 May 2014, with the addition of the coat of arms. A tricolor was presented on 13 August 2014 by Oleg Tsarev as a potential state flag. This resembled an upside-down Romanov flag, which was the national flag of the Russian Empire from 1858 to 1883. However, it has not seen widespread usage, and is seemingly unadopted.
Novorossiyia was an unrecognised confederation of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, claiming the territory of the respective Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts in the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine. On 20 May 2015 the leadership of the Federal State of Novorossiya announced the 'freezing' of the confederation 'project'.
