1283 Komsomolia

This minor planet is named after the Komsomol (Комсомо́л), which is short for the All-Union Leninist Young Communist League (Всесою́зный ле́нинский коммунисти́ческий сою́з молодёжи). It was a youth political organization that existed from 1918 to 1991, and was asociated with the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. (If, like I was initially, you're struggling to think of what the other political parties were in the USSR during that time, keep thinking on it.)

The symbol of this minor planet is derived from the emblem of the Komsomol. It is a banner waving in a curved arc, with a spear on the left side.
