Return of Pahonya

It was on September 19, 1991. The white-red-white flag and the Pahonya coat-of-arms remained state symbols till 1995, when Lukashenka changed them at the referendum.

Also, the BSSR Supreme Council took the decision on the change of name of the republic: the Republic of Belarus appeared instead of the Soviet Byelorussia, also on September 19, 1991.
