A wimpel is a type of pennant most often found in the Nordic countries. Wimpels are flown in place of a proper flag essentially to avoid needing to follow flag code. Seeing a Ukrainian wimpel was pretty surprising for me since Ukraine obviously isn't a country where wimpels see much use, so this is essentially an adaptation of a foreign flag to local flag traditions, simply because city hall doesn't want to raise and lower the flag every day.

Incidentally, one variant of the Swedish wimpel that I've often seen when on the road to Charlottenberg looks a lot like this: blue stripe over yellow, only a lot longer and thinner.
