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.

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

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.

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)
Victor Lomantsov, 7 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.

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.

Asia League Ice Hockey (ALIH) - ice hockey league based in Far East with 9
teams from Japan, China,
Russia and South Korea. Headquarters
placed in Japan. From Russia, Sakhalin is involved.

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.

I have found photo of women alpinists on the top of Elbrus.
They holding a flag of their Alpinist club named after A. Demchenko

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
http://www.dosaaf.gov.by/_modules/_cnews/images/151_10_clean.jpg. 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

Modern abbreviation for ex-DOSAAF is
(Russian defence, sporting-technical organization; "Rossiyskaya Oboronnaya
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?

Both flags are white with the

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.
