Group Status: Current
The National Socialist Legion is a small neo-Nazi group that originated in early 2018 as a breakaway faction of Vanguard America, another neo-Nazi group. The Legion has exhibited activity—primarily propaganda distribution—in around eight states. The Legion describes itself as a “revolutionary National Socialist organization” preparing for “the coming Racial Holy War.” New members ostensibly are required to read white supremacist texts such as Siege and The Turner Diaries.
The logo for the National Socialist Legion is a shield emblem featuring the colors red, black and white (the colors of the Nazi flag). The interior of the shield is divided into two sections. The upper right section features horizontal red and white stripes, like the American flag. The lower left section features a white Wolfsangel on a black background.
