Flag of Sozvezdie Soviet
The flag is based off the classic red flag, with the major alteration being the purple cross in the white canton. The cross defies general explanation, though it is believed to hold great significance to the Central Committee. Those in the know have called it St. Grimace's Cross, but what that means nobody's quite sure.Sozvezdie Soviet. This flag dispensed with the St. Grimace's Cross as "too much of an in-joke" and instead opted for a more abstract expression of Soviet goals. The triangle pointing towards the hoist suggests both a new way of governance and a 'leftward' direction, the color white represents peace, the color red is the traditional socialist color, the white ring extending beyond the edges of the flag represents expansion and the future.
Both flags are still in use in the Soviet: the original flag still adorns the sides of the flagship Ptichka, among other places.
