The club is hated by some supporters of the Moscow-based clubs as well as Zenit Saint Petersburg, in part out of jealousy of the club's former wealth and also out of ethnic and religious animosity.[36]

The club's crest includes a yellow eagle in traditional Caucasian clothing with elements of the Dagestani flag.
