Missing star

MMDE: Flag had no star

Current: Flag has a star

Now it's the turn of the Russian flag - do you remember it having no star?

References today show the bright red flag with it's familiar Hammer and Sickle in the top left corner, below a star, all colored gold.

Some claim the flag never had the star and seeing it there seems "out of place".
