The pennant has a form of a pentagon pointed downward.
The pennant is edged with a goldish twisted cord and tassels.
In the upper part of the pennant there is an inserted rod with a braid, designed for fastening.
On the front side of the pennant there is the emblem of the Navy – a gold double-headed eagle with outstretched wings, holding two silver admiralty anchors crossed behind its back.
Emblem placed on the background of two waving flags: the naval flag at the left, and the national flag of Russia at the right.
The main part of the pennant is taken by a stylized image of a nuclear submarine on the background of the globe, symbolizing the willingness of Russian submariners to fight anywhere in the World’s oceans.
The bottom of the pennant is decorated with crossed laurel branches, over which there is a golden anchor entwined with a marine rope.
The inscriptions read: “RUSSIA” at the top and “SUBMARINE FORCES” on the curly ribbon at the centre.
Submarine Forces is a branch of the Navy, including the nuclear-powered strategic missile submarines and nuclear multipurpose submarines.
Unlike other branches of the Navy, the Submarine Forces, being a shock force of the fleet, have several properties that determine their advantage in warfare at sea: stealth, the ability to conduct military operations in all areas of the oceans, the ability to deliver powerful nuclear missile strikes on important militarily targets of the enemy and most effectively conduct combat operations against surface ships, submarines, transport vessels of the enemy.
They have the ability to operate under the ice of the Arctic Basin regardless of the environmental conditions of the area.
