There is a discussion of the origins of the Red Flag in a cartoon book 
called "Socialism for Beginners" by Anna Paczuska and Phil Evans (IIRC), 
which was published in Britain by InkLinks (a long defunct let-wing 
publisher) in the late 1970s. I'll se if I can find my copy and, if I 
do, I'll post the relevant extract.
