@Doomer : I thought because if you look at the globe, the image of the country look like a bear....and red because of the Russian flag is red...

I have another question : What does "White Russian" mean ? I have a lot of Chess magazines and books ("64", Shatmatny i SSSR") stating like that many years ago ....

here is Russian flag https://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/fa ... nt/rs.html
Same colors as on a USA flag
May be people should say USA is "Red Chicken Country" ?
Because USA is world's leader of exporting of chicken and Red because flag has same colors as Russian flag ?
I think logic in this sentence same as in your post
BTW Indonesia as well has red strip on the flag
Let's say Indonesia is "Red Oil Country" for example
why not ?
