Originally founded as Society for the Studies of Soviet Culture to accustom Germans with the rather unfamiliar Russian culture, the organization later became a pure propaganda tool. As an interesting turn of events, with the start of reforms in the Soviet Union, membership increased as a sign of support for Gorbatchev's Perestroika policy.

Its flag was a white (probably 3:5) flag with the organization's emblem in the center. The emblem consisted of a Soviet and a GDR flag flying next to each other, surrounded by the words für Deutsch Sowjetische Freundschaft.

A white flag with DSF symbol in center. The symbol showed the Soviet and German Democratic Republic flags flying next to each other, surrounded by the words FÜR DEUTSCH-SOWJETISCHE FREUNDSCHAFT. The flag was flown at May day parades, events organized by the society and whenever Soviet officials visited East Germany. Source: German Democratic Republic propaganda website.
