Doesn’t look like Vladimir Putin is going to change his views on same-sex relations or marriage any time soon (not that anyone expected him to), as he’s just created and released a ‘straight flag’ which was flying proud during Russia’s ‘family and fidelity day’ this week.

It depicts the ‘standard Russian family’ of two parents and three kids holding hands. There’s even a hashtag down the bottom which translates to ‘a real family’.
Andrei Lisovenko, deputy head of the United Russian branch in Moscow, said:
This is our response to same-sex marriage, to this mockery of the concept of the family. ‘We have to warn against gay-fever at home and support traditional values in our country.

That’s just how Vladimir Putin does things I suppose. As soon as he realised his ‘enemies’ had their own flag he wanted the exact opposite flag made immediately. No way an LGBT flag is going to exist in his world without a straight flag existing too.
Forget what it represents though, even Putin has to admit that his flag looks a bit crap. I mean there’s no comparison to the gay pride flag which looks awesome no matter what you think about the LGBT community. Come on Putin, do better.
P.S. I guess someone like him will never get over the fact he had a butt plug made in his likeness.
