This is a fictional flag, not a real one or a prototype.
Victor Lomantsov, 26 Jan 2003

It might be a badly recreated Soviet naval ensign.

Naval Ensign watch

I found your webpage when trying to find out some information about two flags shown on a watch. This was a gift from my brother-in-law (a Polish army captain) to my father, who served in the British navy as an engineer before his retirement. I understand that these are flags of the Russian navy, but I'm intrigued by the fact that the one on the left is a non-mirrored reverse of the usual ensign, and the only reference to it on your website is of a photo in a magazine - so I thought you would be interested to see this.
Alan Russell, 28 December 2014

Hammer and sickle were not mirrored by the painter in decorative reasons. Because hammer and sickle with hammer's top to the left was more usual. In real flags the hammer and sickle on the reverse side of naval flags were always mirrored.
Victor Lomantsov, 28 December 2014

Just that it's a Raketa 24 hours watch. Probably for the military, as I think they were their biggest customers. Nothing about the flags, sorry. I can't recall the submariner model having such decorations,  though. Some other part of the navy, perhaps.
