Description of the flag

Adopted on 7 October 1952; dark blue bar in base, 1/4 width.
Zeljko Heimer, 17 Apr 1996

Specs.: stripes 3+1; h&s placement and size unknown!

My source for this image was Smith's 1982 book ([smi82], the Croatian edition of the small Smith book). Looking at it again, indeed the soviet azeri flag has considerably larger H&S then other republics.

Reverse of the flag

[Back of the flag]
by Zeljko Heimer, 17 Apr 1996 | [two-sided] [reverse]

No hammer, sickle and star on the reverse side.

Previous version (1952-1956)

According Vexilologie 9-10 [vex] there were two patterns for Azerbaijan: pattern of 1952-1956, and pattern after 1956. Chages are in the size, position and design of the H&S and star. Consequently, also the flags of the ASSRs within Azerbaijan were slighty changed in 1956.
