the image from [iva67] is probably more accurate than the one from the "Flag-znamya korablya" website.

Jack and fortress flag (1924-1932).
Željko Heimer, 13 Apr 1999, quoting from Flag-znamya korablya, 07 Mar 1999

Adopted 29 august 1924 and replaced on 8 july 1935.
Victor Lomantsov, 18 Mar 2000

Why the Jack alone was changed in 1932? The answer is obvious enough: the pre-1932 Jack was too closely related to the Tsarist Jack.
