Army of the Czech Republic and extremists symbols – context and consequence

Josef SMOLÍK

The article deals with the relationship between extremist symbols and soldiers of the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic (AFCR). The text deals with the problematic aspects of assessing extremist symbols of the AFCR members and - on the basis of relevant scientific literature - tries to point at often unfortunate assessment thereof. By no means it tries to diminish the importance of the problem en bloc, rather, it takes the form of a critical discussion within the environment of AFCR. The text is based on the outcomes of political science and legal studies of the far right and far left and particular symbols, respectively.
