Headquarters of Belarusian Popular Front party
The slightly modified Soviet Belarus’ green-red flag and coat of arms were approved as the new symbols of Belarus at a referendum in 1995. As for Pahonia and white-red-white flags in public spaces, they are reduced to only one place: BPF Party’s headquarters. When people unfold a national flag in the street, they immediately get detained by the police, stand a speedy trial in court and end up with a fine between $300 and $600 (in local currency) for “staging an unauthorized mass event”. Waving Russian flags most probably will not be persecuted.
