In Evans' Observers Book of Flags (1959) I read: "The flag of the Eastern Mongolian Independent Republic resembles the red flag of Russia, except that the emblem below the star depicts a crossed mattock and horsewhip, representing the peasants and the Mongol horsemen."
So far I found nothing on it in my books about this.

The Eastern Mongolian Independent Republic was an attempt to establish a
state in the Mongolian inhabited western portion of Manchuria. The area was
not part of Inner Mongolia at the time, although afterwards the Peoples
Republic of China did incorporate it into Inner Mongolia from 1947 to 1969,
and again from 1979 to the present. (Source: James Minahan, Nations
