The Guards angle of the Airborne beret represents a triangular goldish metal plate with enamel, painted in the colours of Russian national flag. The flag itself is fixed on a spear-shaped staff and is decorated with two twisted cords with tassels on the ends. On the cloth of the flag, at the staff, there is a relief image of a golden eagle soaring on the background of an opened parachute with a white canopy and straps in the blue field. At the opposite end of the cloth there is a goldish metal medallion in the form of the relief Airborne emblem.
On its top the flag is framed with a flapping Guards ribbon attached to the staff.
On the reverse side of the small flag there a screw with a nut and clamper for fastening to the headdress.
The eagle, the traditional symbol of the “winged infantry”, demonstrates strength, pride and nobility.
The parachute is a means of the troops’ delivery to the battlefield, the symbol of the readiness to fight both in the air and on the ground.
The white colour of the parachute symbolises purity of thoughts and faith in the just cause.
The emblem of the Russian Airborne Troops s is a sign in the form of an opened parachute with a paratrooper and two airplanes pn each side, framed with oak wreath.
The Guards ribbon is the symbol of personal valour on the battlefield. The black and yellow colours of the ribbon mean “smoke and flame”.
