Description of the flag

Adopted in 6 February 1953; wavy white and blue line in lower part.
Zeljko Heimer, 17 Apr 1996

Judging from the image at this address, the hammer and sickle emblem on the soviet Estonia flag has the same size and placement specs than in the soviet national flag.

by António Martins, 22 Apr 1999

I was aware at the time that Mikhail Gorbachev had decided to let Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia fly their 1918 national flags, in addition to their S.S.R. flags.

The emblem of the SSR was used until 8 May 1990 (introduction date not mentioned by Hesmer [hes92], but probably 1940).
