V. A. Durovís Russian and Soviet Military Awards [dur90], on pages 8-9 of the Russian text and 14-15 of the English, discuss collective military awards:

Honorary colours were also awarded to warships. The first man-of-war to win the right to fly St George's ensign was the battleship Azov, whose crew, fighting under the command of Captain Mikhail Lazarev, distinguished themselves in the sea fight with a Turko-Egyptian squadron in Navarin Bay in 1827.
(snip)
When the Azov fell into disrepair, a new ship named Memory of the Azov was built. St George's ensign was hoisted on the new ship, which emphasised the continuity of combat traditions in the Russian navy.
