Officially reverse looked like obverse without star and hammer-sickle.
But in fact I never saw these flags without star, hammer-sickle. Real flags
(all 15) usually were either with reverse analogous
to obverse (but with star and hammer-and-sickle near the hoist) or with
reverse = mirrored obverse.

Many (all?) soviet republics had these
banners. Usually it was red field with republican
coat-of-arms and the name of republic.
They had gold fringe.

A similar flag was sent to me from Moldova SSR. The flag is a 1:1 ratio,
red background with green stripe, the only exception is that the coat of
arms is in color, located in the center.

The emblem of the SSR was introduced 10th February 1941
(according to Hesmer [hes92])
by the then constitution (Art. 117); it was replaced by the
current one 3 November 1990.
