[Diktatura Tzentrokaspia flag 1918]by Jaume Ollé

The Commune was defeated, but a few weeks later (14 August 1918) the unionists and other radicals proclaimed a State named "Dictatorship of Central Caspian" (Diktatura Tzentrokaspia) and adopted a light blue flag with a central horizontal red stripe. This state was suppressed after a few weeks, too.
