The Atomwaffen Division (Atomwaffen meaning "atomic weapons" in German) is a neo-Nazi terrorist network. Formed in 2015 and based in the Southern United States, it has since expanded across the United States and it has also expanded into the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, and the Baltic states. The group is part of the alt-right, but is considered extreme even within that movement. It is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Members of the Atomwaffen Division have been held responsible for a number of murders, planned terrorist attacks, as well as other criminal actions.

The group is one of several neo-Nazi and alt-right organizations which have been banned by Discord and YouTube for violations of their Terms of Service. However, the group has since re-uploaded content to YouTube and YouTube has allowed the content to stay online.

Members participate in “hate camps,” organized hiking excursions and military-style training exercises (which include firing range practices with semi automatic rifles)

The flag is black, bearing a yellow saltire with arms widening towards the flag corners and cotised dark red, over all the logo consisting of a black shield fimbriated white with an outermost black outline, charged with the radiation hazard symbol (Unicode: U+2622) in white and surrounded by an "endless" laurel wreath (its twig making an uninterrupted circle) in white with black outline.

The flag is seen here:
