About Russian sport flags

Today these are all different clubs. But in USSR they were parts of united sport societies, dealing with different sports and present in different cities.
Victor Lomantsov, 22 Sep 2003

Most of them, perhaps all, are still using the same colors, emblems and even flags than in the soviet era, or at least with only slight variations.

Go, Russia!

Вперёд, Россия! image by Chrystian Kretowicz 28 Jun 2010

A visitor to RussoVex-ml asked a lot of questions about the flag waved at the sporting events in support of the Russian national teams (football, hockey, volleyball etc) Our Viktor Lomantsov answered those questions in detail. Here is a short summary of it: The flag "Vpieryod, Rossiya!" ("Forward, Russia!" or "Go, Russia!"), featuring the ferocious brown bear, appeared first on October 17, 2007 at the Russia vs. England football match in the elimination phase of the European Championship.

Ice-hockey Federation of Russia

Flag of IPLRB image by Victor Lomantsov, 7 Dec 2007

In search of unidentified objects I landed on this site, showing a different (newer?) emblem
Jan Mertens, 6 Dec 2007

Yes. Now they use new emblem. I saw white flag with this emblem too (in our city stadium, above the arena)

Former flag

Flag of IPLRB image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 6 Dec 2007

For our site, here's an improved version of Victor Lomantsov's image, sent on 22 Dec 2001. It is a white flag with the logo of the Ice-hockey Federation of Russia on the center. This is circular, seal-like, with the golden double-head eagle from the federal CoA charged with an inescutcheon of the federal flag (tierced per fess, Argent, Azure and Gules) and holding in each talon two unidentified objects, one in each talon. Around this, on a blue ring, the words "ФЕДЕРАЦИЯ ХОККЕЯ" above and "РОССИИ" below; the ring is double fimbriated white and red.
António Martins-Tuválkin, 6 Dec 2007

The two objects may be the ends of two hockey sticks. It fits the general shape of the objects and would be logical for the organization, but it's just a guess.

Spartak Cheboksary

Spartak Chebo flag image by António Martins, 19 Dec 2000

I have seen this flag in Cheboksary, where the local soccer club, Spartak Cheboksary, is a “filial” of the muscovite club — supposedly with the same flag.

Official flag of FC "Torpedo" Moscow — white with logo.

Российская оборонная спортивно-техническая организация

image by Victor Lomantsov, 18 Jun 2007

While doing research about the Belarusian DOSAAF, I found the image of a possible related flag used by the Russians. The image of the flag is at DOSAAF is Russian for "Voluntary Society of Assistance to the Army, the Air Force and the Navy," similar to a scouting organization but geared towards military preparedness.
Zachary Harden, 18 Jun 2007

Modern abbreviation for ex-DOSAAF is "ROSTO (DOSAAF)" (Russian defence, sporting-technical organization; "Rossiyskaya Oboronnaya Sportivno-tekhnicheskaya Organizatsiya")
Victor Lomantsov, 18 Jun 2007

It has very close resemblance with the original (Soviet) DOSAAF flag (in FotW-ws at su@.html#dosaf, keyword over the 200 char limit and not showing, apologies!): old logo replaced by a new one, and not very different at that, old pattern kept at the hoist side and the Russian tricolor filling the fly side. Victor's image is 3:5 with the fly side taking up 2/3ths of the width (11/9ths of the height).

The red-white stripes seem to differ in detail against the soviet version (both images by Victor): 100+6+7+8+7+6+16 vs. 125+10+12+19+12+10+28. Which are the the exact specs?

This flag used on clan actions: motor races, rallies etc. Chevy-Clan has two flags. Flag with the inscription is set on the first truck of the column, with a shield — on the last and perhaps on the middle.
