Before the start of the training of the OKAS-2019 reservists (it can be translated into Russian as “spike” or “thorn”), the command proposed the development of an emblem (chevron) for the participants in the training.
As a result, over fifty options were sent to the Estonian military department, among which there are frankly extravagant ones, as well as those that show analogies with radical symbols.
A participant named Janus Koivastik proposed an emblem of pacifism with the words “peace” and “love” in English. Ingvar Meen decided that a woman with a naked breast would be suitable for the emblem. Marcus Wijk proposed a chevron variant, which depicted a hedgehog with a gun. Evelyn Jago presents a chevron with a picture of a soldier on a background of mushrooms.
As a result, it was stated that the army art commission could not come to an unambiguous conclusion about the winner of the chevron contest for Estonian reservists.
