The flag of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia was red with a yellow outlined star in which there was the sickle and hammer, underneath the acronym SKJ (Savez Komunista Jugoslavije); in the canton, and next to it, the motto "Workers of All Countries, Unite!".
The Statutes of SKJ prescribe that the name of the party and the motto "should be written in national languages". There were at least six versions of this flag, all official, differing in the writing of the acronym of the party name and the text in the motto.
There might have been more versions of the flag. Although the Statutes prescribe that the motto should be above the star, in practice it was often beside it. The text should be properly readable from both sides of the flag. The League of Communists was formed in 1952 from the former Communist Party (KPJ), changing in the flag only the acronym under the star.

The writing on the image is slightly incorrect, it should be "Proleteri od site zemji, obedinete se!".
