I have seen this one in use on the top mast of some passenger ferries in Cheboksary (by the Volga), several times during the last couple of years. Perhaps the other such flags fell out of usage due to their explicit obsolete symbology (hammer-and-sickle and/or "CCCP"), but the star seems to remain current.
