The battalions of Estonian defence forces have historical connections to the pre-war battalions, they have taken the old names and old symbols (from the 1930es) of them.

Estonian Defence League

Estonian Defence League (Eesti Kaitseliit): Home Guard organization. Silver eagle facing sinister (i.e. the fly) holding a sword and a shield (Estonian Coat of Arms) on a yellow background. The version illustrated is intended to be hoisted from outdoor flagpoles; a similar design with a smaller badge appears on the reverse side of each EDL regional unit (Malev) flag, so that the eagle, still facing sinister, faces the hoist, while the obverse side has a different design for each flag.
The image is based on official EDF illustrations as shown on Wikipedia.
