Flag of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast (Евре́йская автоно́мная о́бласть)

Soviet authorities established the autonomous oblast in 1934. It was the result of Joseph Stalin’s nationality policy, which allowed for the Jews of the Soviet Union to receive a territory in which to pursue Yiddish cultural heritage within a socialist framework.
