Anichka

Anichka is a hat made in Hattingdon’s distinctive classic hat silhouette — created in support of the people and country of Ukraine — in the blue and yellow colours of their flag.

The name Anichka in the Ukrainian, Hebrew origin, means grace, or favoured, and the reason we chose it for this hat — at this time.

Ukraine acquired a distinctive flag in 1949 under the communist regime. The Red Banner of the Soviet Union with its golden hammer, sickle, and star was modified for use in Ukraine by having a horizontal stripe of light blue added at the bottom.

After Ukraine again proclaimed its independence on August 24, 1991, many fought to maintain a communist system under that flag. Eventually, however, anticommunist forces were successful, and the flag was replaced with the nationalist blue-yellow banner on January 28, 1992, seen above.


Nice to see you here. Stop by again soon.
