These are not flags. They are small (about 4×10 cm) stripe for using on demonstrations on soviet holydays (1 of May, Workers’ Day; 7 of November, Revolution Day; etc). You may strengthen this stripe on your clothes, you may add a hoist and make a small banner. You can find thousands of different designs ot the stripes: with coat of arms, with profile of Lenin, with flowers and many-many other.

soviet holiday flag 01

I received this flag from a friend of mine in Ekaterinburg. It is a Prazn, or Holiday flag, particularly Spring, with the flowers and all. This flag has the manufacturers name and cost on the back hoist edge. This flag is also shown on this website on the internet.

It’s interesting to note that the star is solid yellow, not red with yellow fimbriation, somehow confirming some relaxation among soviet flag makers. The inscription reads:
S   p r a z d n i k o m
which means «Happy holiday» (litterally «[congratulations] with [the] holiday»).
