Description of the flag

Red hammer and sickle with star in a blue sun in canton, blue bar in upper part of flag. Adopted 11 April 1951
Željko Heimer

Specs.: stripes and canton unknown!; hammer-and-sickle placement and size unknown! Is the star really solid red, not fimbriated?

Reverse of the flag

No hammer, sickle and star on the reverse side [generic prescription for all soviet flags].
Mark Sensen, 25 May 1997

How did the Georgian SSR flag reverse look like?…
António Martins, 28 Nov 2002

If the hammer and sickle were not present on this flag, the sun will be just blue. The Georgia SSR flag that I own has the hammer and sickle, which is red, on both sides.

The emblem of the SSR was introduced 28 February 1922 (according to Hesmer [hes92]) and replaced by the current one on 11 December 1990. The purplish colour in the SSR emblem referred to the historical colour that can also be found in the current emblem and national flag. The central symbol in the SSR emblem (Mt. Elbrus) can also be found in the current arms.
