The Ukrainian Insurgent Army was a Military Formation raised in 1942 during World War II. The Army was anti-Communist and National Socialist (Nazi Germany). At their height, their numbers were around 200,000 effectives. They were supported (although tacitly) in part by The Allied Forces (although they chose to operate independently). The majority of their weaponry was garnered from battle. They did wear uniforms and had an Organizational Ranking System. After The War, with the envelopment of The Soviet Union, many of The Army were rounded up and either killed or imprisoned.
Their Flag was simple in design and featured Twin Vertical Bars – of Red over Black. No phrasing or imagery was used. When Ukraine gained it's independence from The Soviet Union (Russia) in 1991, The Insurgent Army Veteran Survivors were honored as War Heroes.
