Water-rescuing flag and ensign

As of 1925

[soviet rescue flag 1924]
by Zeljko Heimer, Apr 2000

This flag was published in 1925 in Album of flags and pennants of USSR [urs25]. Officially it was an «ensign for water-rescuing ships and flag for water-rescuing institutions». This flag was not a flag for Society of Red Cross and Red Crescent — founded in 1925 too.

Later (in magazines of 1970ths) I saw analogous flag for rescuing-ships but with USSR-flag in canton. I don`t know details of adoption...

Emblem: red cross, two crossed blue anchors inside white-orange life-buoy with inscriptions: "OSVOD" (orange letters on white half of life-buoy) and "RSFSR" (white letters on orange half).
