It is a flag of the small town Dobryanka (in Perm Region of Russia, about
60 km to north from Perm). Designers: A. P. Zyryanov, L. A. Kolchanova.
Coat of arms and flag were designed in 1997. (Were they adopted officially?
I don’t know.) Coat of arms: azure, a church Argent, in chief sinister
the cyrillic letter "Д" Or. Blue (azure) colour symbolizes the
river Kama and it’s Reservoir.

As of 1980, Dobrânka was a city, center of a county of the
same name but itself detached from it (usual situation), being
a «city subjected to a region».

In descriptions: shield per fess, 1) coat of arms of Perm, 2) azure,
a church Argent, in chief sinister a cyrillic letter "Д" Or.
This construction of civic arms (with arms of provincial
centre in upper part) is used in Russia since 1780ths. But in fact
shields without provincial arms in upper part are used (since 1850ths)
very often. The shield with prov. arms looks “old”.
