    National Flag of Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, maritime version, dated 1955.

    National Flag of Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, maritime version, dated 1955. In wool bunting, measures 61" by 28".

    The rough grey cloth on one hoist end holds the rope which was used to attach the flag to the line on the mast. Made to the same specifications as flags of the Soviet Navy, this type of flags was specifically designed for use on sea and river vessels, not for dry land. This particular piece features rougher texture of the bunting as compared to later naval and maritime flags. Note also the natural hemp construction of the lanyard rope, as opposed to synthetic material of the later flags. The canvas hoist sleeve shows manufacturer's stamp of the Vozrozhdenie Factory with a 1955 date, and what appears to be a period inventory stamp with an anchor. Interestingly, there are also a couple of small sewn-in paper tags, one at the hoist sleeve and another in the far lower corner of the flag.

    The flag is in very good to excellent condition. It has only a single tiny moth bite to the red cloth inside the hammer and sickle emblem and a few even smaller moth nips to the blue field near the hoist. None of these are easily noticeable given the size of the flag. The flag has a single small spot near far lower corner, otherwise perfectly clean; its colors are strong, not faded. This highly uncommon early Cold War example will display very nicely!
