Based on GIS (Google Image Search) hits, it is from nowadays Russia from Bashkorostan. If you are familiar with Russian language, here is the web site where they provide extra information. Sadly I couldn't find English sources.

The same symbolics can be found on Iglinckii rayon (Iglinsk county) wikipedia. Sadly the former original russian site was deleted.
