St George Band Campaign from Voice of Russia

Cross of the Order of St George, 1st Class

People across Russia and beyond will soon be pinning on black and orange bands as part of the St George Band nationwide campaign held by Voice of Russia  jointly with other state and public organisations. The black and orange band reflects the colours of the St George’s Cross, an ancient Russian military distinction which today symbolises the Great Victory in the Second World War. The St George Band campaign, to run from 24 April until 12 May, is timed for the 63rd anniversary of that momentous event in our history. Last year, you could see this symbol of our undying memory in many other countries as well. Everyone who wants to wear the St George Band can get it from Voice of Russia . Just send us an e-mail at world@ruvr.ru and we’ll send the St George Band to you!

Pin up a St George Band as a token of memory!

  • Attach it to the lapel of your coat
  • Or to the antenna of your automobile

Let’s start a tradition together!
