The Soviet jack was (since 1932) red with white-bordered star and a hammer and sickle at the centre of star.
Nikolay Khimenkov, 13 March 1999

The Jack was red with a white hammer and sickle inside a red star inside a white star.
Marcus Wendel, 15 September 1999, quoting from [ped73]

Navy jack (red with white star, hammer, sickle) was adopted on 8 july 1935. It was second jack, the first was adopted 29 august 1924.
Victor Lomantsov, 18 March 2000

The size of the red star itself is the same as that on the 1923-1935 Ensign. As such, the 1932 Jack actually belonged to the “first generation” variety of naval flags (and indeed the only one of them to survive beyond 1935).
