A Russian flag with portraits of President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is held by demonstrators during celebrations marking National Flag Day in Moscow, Friday, Aug. 22, 2014. The holiday, introduced in 1994, is marked annually to commemorate the first time in 1991 when three-color flag was hoisted over the Russian government building to replace the Soviet hammer and sickle flag after Russia's failed 1991 coup.
