Not one single bit. Don't plug your ears and pretend like the USSR was anywhere close to actual socialism. Stalin reversed the revolution and turned Russia into a state-capitalist empire with an inefficient upper-class bureaucracy. Fuck the Soviet Union, except for the very first years(mostly).
This got me thinking, though... many of the flags are extremely similar. You probably couldn't tell the difference between the Ukrainian and Kazakh SSRs from a distance, for example. And look at Azerbaijan and Armenia. I think it would have been better if the USSR made more of an effort to have distinctive flags for its SSRs (Georgia and Byelorussia are good examples, the first because of its unconventional hammer-and-sickle and the second because of the pattern on the hoist side).
