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:,, and 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

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.]
