    Default Soviet Wartime Banner w/Stalin as Marshal of SU-- need help translating/identifying

    This flag/banner was part of a very large trade deal that I made in the early '90's, and hope that someone can give me some info on what it is. Stalin's visage, unfortunately has been damaged by a crease/fold, but for the most part it is in decent shape. Measures about 4'X3', and appears to be artificial silk. Lettering and image are printed or silk-screened. Gold fringe is polished cotton. The banner has provisions for pole-mounting.

    Thanks in advance for any help you may provide.

    There were five or six other Soviet banners/flags involved in the trade, (at the time Soviet flags and banners were all dirt cheap) but all, including this one is in storage. I hope to post the others here in the near future if I have any luck getting this one identified. I should have photographed all but hindsight is always 20-20.

    It's a commemorative banner of some sort.

    On the obverse with Stalin's bust:
    Слава
    вдохновителю организатору
    всех наших побед-
    великому
    Сталину!

    Glory
    inspirational organizer
    all our victories-
    great
    Stalin!

    On the reverse:
    Переходящее знашя
    за лучшие показатели
    в соцналистическом
    соревновании
    по выполнению плана

    Passing knowledge
    for the best performance
    in the socialist
    competition
    to implement the plan

    Perhaps used at celebrations, assemblies, parades by a labor organization in recognition of socialist competition and/or completion of the various 5 year plans for agriculture or industry. My best guess as to age would be the 1970's or 1980's.

    If the banner is authentic it could be made from 1943 to mid or late 50's. If itís fake it could be made in early 90's.

    It could not be made in 1970's - 1980's. At least officially.

    and a little mistake:

    On the reverse:
    Переходящее знаМя

    So, the translation is:
    Passing banner, not knowledge.
