On the threshold of the Victory Day (May 9th) when Russia and many countries in the world will celebrate 70th Anniversary of the Great Victory over Nazi Germany, streets and squares of Moscow city were festively decorated with thousands big and small red banners with waving ribbon of Saint George on it. This flying in the wind big red banner was taken on Manezhnaya square in background of a tower and wall of Moscow Kremlin.

The Ribbon of Saint George (St. George’s Ribbon) is the most recognized and respected symbols of military valour in modern Russia. It consists of a black and orange bicolor pattern to symbolize fire and gunpowder. Originally the Georgian ribbon emerged as part the Order of St. George, established in 1769 by Catherine the Great as the highest military decoration of Imperial Russia.
