The Flag

National Socialist Revolutionary Movement "Black Sun" (Национал-социалистическое революционное движение "Чёрное солнце", Natsional-sotsialisticheskoye revolyutsionnoye dvizheniye "Chornoye Solntse") is a neo-Nazi organization from Russia. Its flag is a black-red-black horizontal triband, red stripe a bit wider than the black ones, with a large Black Sun symbol in white over all. The symbol looks like the mirror-image of its usual depiction. The photos of this flag can be found here: https://vk.com/albums-133025484, http://forum.dpni.org/showthread.php?t=71072&page=4, and http://komitetns.org/russkij-marsh-protiv-diktatury-obzor-aktsij-v-regionah. They all date from 2016, so the organization must have been founded earlier that year or shortly before, and the same applies to introduction of its flag.

[A note on Russian spelling: letter "ё" - transcribed as "yo" or "o", depending on the position - is usually replaced with the letter "е"-
transcribed likewise as "ye" or "e" - so "Чёрное" is often written as "Черное" and transcribed as "Chernoye" - even though it has not been pronounced like that for centuries, the use of modified letter has almost never been obligatory. For more about the issue, see at
Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yo_(Cyrillic)

However, during last several years, there has been an increase of the Internet use of Yo letter, often citing the patriotic reasons - that
it is a Russian letter, so it shall be always used in Russian texts wherever necessary. Still an ambiguity remains regarding that, even in
the ultra-nationalist sites like the above sources, where examples of both spellings are found.]
