The current flag is Russian flag. USSR was a country that Russia (official name is Russian Federation) was once part of. USSR no longer exists: it broke into many independent countries, Russia being one of them.
Answer by GARISH
USSR does not exist anymore.
Here is the wiki article about Flags of Russia. Current is on the top.
Though USSR flag is appropriate if your project is about Soviet Russia 1917-1991.

I hope I can help. If you are doing a project about Russia/Россия ( (Russian Federation/Российская Федерация) you would use his flag. This is the flag of Russia 1721 – 1917/1991-Present. Note the period between 1721-1917 is know as Imperial Russia/Российская империя
The flag you may also get is the red one with the hammer and sickle. Like this…
This was the flag of the Soviet Union/Советский Союз aka USSR/CCCP aka Union Of Soviet Socialist Republics/Союз Советских Социалистических Республик. This was a union of several states including Russia. The flag you see in the link above is the flag of the Soviet Union (as a whole) not of Soviet Russia, meaning Russia as a Soviet Republic. This flag represented the entire union not just Russia so you would not use this flag to represent Russia.
The flag Russia used during the Soviet times is this one…
This was Russian flag from 1922-1991 (During the Soviet Union)
Another thing. Between 1858—1883 during the period of the Russian Empire this flag was used. White/Yellow/Black
Hope this helps

russia’s flag is three bars, white on top, blue in the middle (yeltsin had a powder-blue-it is now a deeper blue) and red on the bottom.
the ussr flag was the hammer and sickle (symbols of industry and agriculture) on a red field.
the ussr was 15 republics, latvia, lithuania, estonia, ukraine (which was never before a political area, just a land area- hence the ukraine) like in usa the great basin… tajikistan, uzbekistan, armenia, georgia, kazakstan, moldova, azerbaijan, kirghistan, turkministan, byelorus (white russia) and of course the biggest of all, russia.
good luck with your russian project!!
