Shtandart is the replica of an 18th century Russian frigate. She was then the flagship of the fleet of Tsar Peter the Great. The Shtandart, whose name means "original standard" was built in 1703, and was the pride of the Russian fleet, until it fell apart in 1727, during an unfortunate restoration project. An edict was then promulgated: "In memory of his name, which His Majesty Peter the Great gave him, put the keel and build a new ship" The Sthandart was finally rebuilt and launched in ... 1999! It travels the seas again, and was photographed here off Sunderland, England, during the Tall Ships Races 2018.
