This may be a coincidence, but the same kind of design was used in Brittany by Fulor (Wrath), also an anarcho-communist movement. Fulor used an ermine spot counterchanged instead of a star. Both designs are extremely successful from a purely aesthetical point of view.

António Martins asked what is the difference between sowjet- and räte-. I assume Rätekommunisten are more bound by the ideas of post-World War One German Communism than by the later happenings in the Soviet Union, thus more Rosa Luxemburg and Workers' Communes, less Lenin and Stalin. This webpage also seems to suggest some degree of agreement with Trotsky.
