On the Ussuriysk Cossack Host sleeve patch there is a golden double-headed eagle with outstretched wings crowned with the three crowns and holding the scepter and orb.
On the eagle’s chest there is a yellow shield with blue year of the formation of the Host – 1889.
By the eagle’s tail there are golden branches: a grape at the left, and an oak at the right. The branches are interwoven with a blue ribbon with the inscription “1990” (the year of the rebirth of the Host) in the centre.
Under the emblem there is a modern coat of arms of the Primorsky Kray.
The Cossacks were people who guarded the borders of Russia when there was no regular army.
After the regular army was formed by Tsar Peter I, the Cossacks became an official combat unit, which helped to magnify the strength of Russian weapons.
The Cossacks are an integral part of the Russian people. The Cossack movement was a form of mass protest against feudal oppression. This free society was based on equality and liberty of the members.
The Cossacks carried military service to protect the borders from foreigners and had become an important part of the Russian army.
The Cossacks received eternal gratitude for being loyal and courageous defenders of Russia.
