Description of the flag

Adopted in 24 January 1953; blue bar in lower part of flag.
Željko Heimer, 17 Apr 1996

According to [fss]: Stripes: 6+2+1. Star is contained in imaginary circle of diameter 12.5% of flag height. hammer and sickle in imaginary square of sides 25% of flag height. Vertical axe of star and hammer and sickle at 25% of flag length. The horizontal axe of the hammer and sickle not given, but looks like centered at the upper red stripe. Also not given, the distance between the hammer and sickle and the star. [See also here.]

I’d say that the circle enscribing the star touches the edge of the imaginary square — at least it is so in the other comparable construction sheets.

No hammer, sickle and star on the reverse side.
Mark Sensen, 25 May 1997

Officially reverse looked like obverse without star and hammer-sickle. But in fact I never saw these flags without star, hammer-sickle. Real flags (all 15) usually were either with reverse analogous to obverse (but with star and hammer-and-sickle near the hoist) or with reverse = mirrored obverse.
