At http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1980/2848/1600/Crimeia.jpg [retrieved] is this anti-NATO graffitti displaying a row of soviet-era flags, from left to right:
It seems to me, that I know the flag depicted in item "Red-blue flag in Crimea". I'm not quite sure, but it
may be the flag of Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine. They have a
but its English version is incomplete. But the red star on the blue disc is their symbol
(photo from ws), and they were
actively involved in the anti-NATO action mentioned. [It turns out that the blue disc is a depiction
of the globe]

A black-field flag with white "NACHTIGALL" (German for nightingale) inscription over a white
eagle with Ukrainian shield.
The Nachtigall Battalion, also known as the Ukrainian Nightingale Battalion Group, or officially as Special Group Nachtigall was a subunit under command of the German Abwehr special-operations unit Lehrregiment "Brandenburg" z.b.V. 800 in 1941.
The unit was disbanded by the Germans in the same year (not because of their killings of Jewish citizens, but because of their participation in the proclamation of Ukrainian independence). (source)

Ukrainian flag with the Chechnya CoA in show of
solidarity with Ukraine (photo, source).
Notice that by this time, the first "phase"
of the Russian invasion had ended (2014) and
the second "phase" (2022) had not taken place yet, so this gives the
flag a rather civilian nature (grassroots background) as opposed to a
military intervention of Chechen fighters (as it currently happens as
seen here: Independentist Chechen flag,
Dudayev Battalion flag, Akhmad Kadyrov flag).

The only problem I have with this one, is that the Facebook picture
shows the white band more narrow at the top than it does near the bottom.
But remember why those A2 sized displays of all flags were so far off
sometimes: The important part was that the flag could be recognised, not
so much that the picture matched the cloth exactly.
