Probably belongs to one marginal pro-communist organisation "Red Cross-road" (the meaning of the inscription). I’ve never heard of that organisation and have never seen the flag as well. The host of the site is the International Center for Forming of the Communist Doctrine.

The mixing of tsarist symbols (Peter’s alternate naval flag), hammer and sickle and red-white-black might suppose a neonazi (or “fascist”, as they’re called here) party or group, a fringe group of soviet nostalgic nationalists (and hence the saloon style lettering certainly isn’t an US connection) but I’m not sure. None of the russians whom I asked knew this one. (I also have no idea why "s" and "t" are red while the other letters are black.)

Yesterday I saw in newspaper the flag of Support of Army Movement. The photo of the flag is small and black-white. There is a monument to Minin and Pozharsky in the centre of the flag. This monument is placed on Red Square in Moscow, Minin and Pozharsky — heroes of anti-polish war in XVII. The Movement was founded in 1990 by general Rokhlin.
