Description of the flag

The Defense Assistance Society of Ukraine (Товариство сприяння обороні України, TSOU) was formed in 1923 as the Society of Aviation and Aeronautics of Ukraine and Crimea. When it was formed in 1991 after the fall of the Soviet Union, this organization was considered the national successor of the parent organization "DOSAAF". It carries on the same functions as the Soviet DOSAAF and other off-shoot organizations (such as Society for Supporting of Army, Air Force and Navy of Republic of Belarus ).

As for the flag of the organization, it is a blue/light purple/yellow horizontal tricolor with their emblem in the middle. While I am not certain when this flag was adopted, the blue and yellow of the flag match those of the national flag. There are also variants of the size of the emblem used on the flag. Sometimes, the flag is entirely in the middle stripe ( or the emblem is about 85% of the flag's width ( In either case, the emblem is outlined in white. Attached are both the flag and the emblem.
