Naval Flags And Pennants.

A friend of mine who just retired from the Coast Guard gave these items to me. He was a part of some joint US/Soviet operation in 1987, where he picked up these flags, as well as several uniforms.

The large flag(seven ft x five ft) looks like another for the Supreme Commander of Soviet Naval Forces. What I am confused about is the extra blue stripe down the middle.

The pennants are for: Red- Regular Navy Blue- Axillary Craft. All I am missing is a green one, right?

There are no markings on the lanyard seam on the large flag.

Re: More Naval Flags and Pennants In.

I believe the flag with the blue stripe down the middle is for the Minister of Defense of USSR.

Regarding the pennants, you are missing the green one for Border Guards, this one for a Senior Commander, as well as the other branches of the Soviet Navy, i.e. Search & Rescue, Hydrographic Service and so on. . .

So I am missing the white and green pennants! I have not seen too many of the other two around.
