We have obtained new constraints on the cosmological parameters Ω m and σ 8 from the peculiar velocities of flat edge-on spiral galaxies from the RFGC catalog. Based on these results presented graphically, we have found the quantitative condition (Ω m /0.3)0.37 σ 8 = 0.92 ± 0.05. The estimates of Ω m and σ 8, along with their combinations Ω m α σ 8 for various α, are compared with the estimates by other authors.
