Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice late Cold War / Soviet Collapse era (1989 dated) Russian Naval Ensign of the Soviet Union. This design was first instituted in 1950, replacing a very similar flag in service since 1935, which had much larger insignia in the field. This wonderful canvas or linen flag measures 48 x 80 inches, the perfect size for a Cold War Wall display.
The flag is white, with a blue bar on the bottom, representing the ocean, with a red Soviet Star to the left and a red Hammer & Sickle to the right. Definitely a very attractive and simple design, which would be flown from all Soviet Naval vessels.
The colors are retained very well, and overall it is in very good condition. There is a bit of age toning, but otherwise it is in great shape. The original nylon halyard is still sewn into the header, with loops at the top and bottom.
The reverse side of the flags header is marked 1989г (год or year), indicating manufacture in 1989. The header is also marked with other words in Russian as well as stock numbers, which we have not been able to translate.
A lovely flag, right from around the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union, ready to display!
NOTE: Alligator clips pictured at top of flag are not included, and were only used to hang the flag.
