Large size, 69" x 44". Features red field with a large "cut-out" star and hammer and sickle. The canvas hoist sleeve shows the maker stamp of the Vladimirskaya Factory, "GOST" manufacturing standard code, and a 1990 date of manufacture.
In excellent condition. There is only a single, barely noticeable moth nip near the far edge. The flag is perfect otherwise: very clean and completely free of wear or significant moth damage. The colors are strong.
This type of flag was raised on the bow of Soviet warships of the 1st or 2nd rate when the ship was in port. It could also be used as flag of a naval fortress, but considering the rather large size of this particular flag, it was probably intended for a large warship.
