Ushanka

Ushanka is Russian hat with round crown and ear flaps, usually made of fur. This hat is one of the symbols of the Soviet Union because it was developed and popularized in Russia during Civil War. Today ushanka is standard winter military hat in many countries, but also a fashioned hat made of different materials, not just fur.
