Ukrainian Post issued one stamp in 2018 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of raising the Ukrainian flags on the ships of the Ukrainian Black Sea Fleet.
The stamp shows us the flag of that time and a stylized warship of the Black Sea Fleet.

April 29, 2018 marked one hundred years from the day when the ships of the Black Sea Fleet raised Ukrainian flags as a sign of subordination to the Ukrainian People's Republic.
On April 29 1918, the Vice-Admiral Mikhail Sablin, commander of the Black Sea Fleet, referring to the decision of the delegates of the ship commands and the mood of the Ukrainian sailors and officers, officially declared the entire Black Sea Fleet as the fleet of the Ukrainian People's Republic (UPR) and ordered the teams to raise Ukrainian flags solemnly.
The decision was supported by a significant part of the ships. This happened after in April 1918 the soldiers of the Crimean group of the UNR Army, under the command of General Petro Bolbochan, liberated the Crimea from the Bolsheviks.
Sablin sent a telegram to Kyiv about the transition of the Black Sea Fleet to the jurisdiction of the UPR. Teams that were influenced by the Bolsheviks hastily evacuated their ships from Ukrainian Sevastopol to Novorossiysk.

April 29 was a real triumph of Ukrainian officers and sailors, showing the whole world the desire of Ukrainians to have their own strong state and their own naval forces. This event was the first chord of the fact that Sevastopol is a Ukrainian port, and Ukrainians are entrenched in the Black Sea.
