Under the banner of Marxism-Leninism, under the leadership of the Communist Party--forward to new victories in the construction of communism!

I saw this before, but never really paid any attention...

This is a ceremony for showing the loyalty to the Flag of one's unit and the unit itself. I do not believe this was done very often. The military was not the only organization that practiced this custom. Pioneers, Komsomol, etc. also did this.

Soviet Union is the only country with an unpredictable ... past!

Re: Kissing a banner

It is done when a commander is leaving its unit due to a new assignment or when soldiers are ending their service.
