USSR to CIS 1

Fifteen republics - fifteen sisters. This used to be a common saying in the Soviet Union. In 1991 the family split up with the former republics of the Soviet Union becoming the newly independent states.

Take a look at the changes in their flags and official names. The republics' memberships in the USSR required the incorporation of the red color and the golden star above the crossed hammer and sickle in their flags. "Sovetskaya Sotsialisticheskaya Respublika" or Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR) was also added to their names.
