WW2 Soviet Air Force Flag

Postby kyles bullets » Sun Apr 23, 2017 2:22 pm

Although it can't be confirmed ww2, it has the pre 1955 hammer and sickle design, so might as well call it ww2. Found it at the SOS show in a pile of TR flags...

Nice looking flag Kyle :thumbsup: don't mind the odd flag myself but I haven't seen one of these before. How large is it and what do you plan to do with it? Regards Mark.

Nice Kyle - very interesting design. Cotton material looks good and points to made for purpose, if you get my point. You should try and find the design on the internet. For me this flag looks like a 60s Soviet flying society club, maybe a student branch - its just got that feel to it as I have seen many Hungarian flags from the 60s with a bold designs such as yours.

Nice find :thumbsup:

Thanks guys. The flag is probably 2x3 feet or so, a perfect displayable size. Won't sell it however, as I will probably never find one with the pre 1955 sickle design ever again. Regular ones from the 80's are rare enough and go for a couple hundred as it is now. The flag actually is wool in hand, or feels to be. Has scattered moth holes and a rip on one part, so no flying for it haha.

Dave regarding the design, it is the known design for the soviet air forces:

Information on the hammer and sickle can be seen at this link. On pre 1955 emblems, the sickle reaches past the inside point of the star: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_the_Soviet_Union
