blue bar in upper part of flag. Adopted 11 April 1951
Specs.: stripes and canton unknown!; h&s placement and size

The emblem of the SSR was introduced 28 February 1922
(according to Hesmer [hes92])
and replaced by the
current one on 11 December 1990.
The purplish colour in the SSR emblem referred to the
historical colour that can also
be found in the current emblem and national flag. The central
symbol in the SSR emblem (Mt. Elbrus) can also be found in
the current arms.
