Particular attention is paid to the structural components of the brand of country, which was proposed in the concept of A. Charaeva. The authors consider the causes of strengthening the social values of the brand “Russia” lately. The authors provide a generalized description of the specifics of the social role of national brand in the process of formation of civil identity of the personality of a student.
