Betar is a revisionist-Zionist youth movement formed in 1923 by Zeev Jabotinsky and its name is a short form of "Brit Trumpeldor" in honor of Joseph Trumpeldor, Jabotinsky's close friend. The movement had several different emblems; this one was adopted by the Betar congress in Warsaw in 1929 and became the main emblem of the whole movement internationally.
