Croatia (People's Republic of, until 1963, later Socialist Republic until 1990) had a standard Croatian red-white-blue flag with star, officially adopted on 18 January 1947, officially abandoned at 27 June 1990. The Croatian tricolore dates from 1848, and is based on the colours of the Croatian coats of arms (and has nothing to do with the Russian flag).
