The center symbol is the Ukrainian coat of arms. The acronym ФАУМ stands for the Ukrainian Democratic Youth Association, which helps Ukrainian youth in North America stay in touch and has held an annual summer camp since 1962. Before World War II, 98 percent of Ukrainian Americans settled in the northeastern United States. Nearly 80,000 post-World War II Ukrainian refugees also settled in Canada and the United States.
