The Soviet flag is described at:

The WWII commemorative flag is described at:
http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/ru_wwii.html

Worth a mention because it leads to some interesting tales about the flag raising over the Reichstag and the Banner(s) of Victory

(I couldn't get the URL tags to work on that last address because of the escape character, but the entire line above cut and pasted into IE6 at least, does work.)

Cheers,
