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.

The emblem was introduced in 1937
(according to Hesmer [hes92])
and replaced by the current one (already used in
1919) in 1992. The inescutcheon of the current emblem
shows the Mt. Ararat, which was also the central symbol in 1937-1992.

The coat-of-Arms of Soviet Armenia was illustrated from an initial
prototype sketch by Martiros Sarian, a famous Armenian painter of the XXth
century. Mount Ararat, the symbol of the Armenian nation, is at the center
of the coat-of-Arms of Soviet Armenia. Grapes immidiately beneath Mount
Ararat represent the Biblical traditional account of the first vineyard
that Noah, who is considered the patriarch of the Armenian people, planted
upon his descent from Mount Ararat after the Great Flood as a sign of
rebirth of humanity. The inner rim on the sides of the grapes includes
wheat, symbolic of the sacredness of the soil. Above Mount Ararat is the
Red Star with hammer and sickle and geometric rays encompassing the Red
Star. In the center of the outer rim is the famous motto of «Proletarians
of all countries, unite!» continued with spiral Armenian caption «the
Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic».
