My mother in law visited russia recently and she brought back 2 table flags for my collection. One is the usual white blue red while the second, is the tribands defaced with the arms centered over the name "russia" in cyrillic. probably just a flag more attractive for the tourists.

Looks like it might be the sort of flag waved by sports fans at football matches. Attractive, though - despite the writing.

This table "incorrect" flag (usually, made in China) is very popular in Russia. They made not only for foreign tourists. For example, bus drivers like them, they usually decorate the windscreen with one or two such flags. Sellers think these flags are more beautiful. The flags are not official, of course.

The Russian Federation embassy in Lisbon has a number of these in (tacky!) indoor displays featuring (plastic) flower arrangements and posters showing cultural landmarks and nature landscapes. Of course an untainted tricolor flies on the main balcony and hangs indoors in the appropriate places. I guess this is not different from other Russian embassies and consulates around the world.
