I thought I remembered reading somewhere that these were metal pennants sent up on unmanned Soviet planetary probes.

It was metal pennant transported to the Moon by unmanned space probe Luna-9 (Луна-9) in 1966. Small image of this pennant (with reverse side too) at Vexillographia.RU

I wonder where to stop: Most of these are simple plaques, not flags. A metal plaque with the shape and design of a flag is arguably a flag, as is perhaps an original design in a clearly flaggish shape like the attcahed. But a plaque with words and pictures in patterns not used in flags in not productively classified as a flag.
