The dipole structure of the magnetic field on distances ≥1 kpc from an active galactic nucleus is discussed. Two different models of the magnetic field around a supermassive black hole on the scale of the accretion disk are tested. The first model suggests a superstrong field of the order of 1010 Gauss (Kardashev [CITE]), the other one proposed by Field & Rodgers ([CITE]) predicts much lower values (~ 104 Gauss).
