Standard-bearer

 

an individual charged with the honor and responsibility of carrying the colors in a military formation. In the Russian army the standard-bearer was chosen from the ranks of noncommissioned officers with battle decorations. In the Soviet army he is designated by order for each unit and is usually a sergeant or officer, usually with government decorations, or a soldier with excellent results in battle and political training. Two assistants are assigned to protect the colors and to replace the standard-bearer if he is disabled.
