Summary: A quantum analogue of the double covering of \(\text{SO} (3)\) by \(\text{SU} (2)\) is formulated and proved. Here the quantum group \(\text{SO}_q (3)\) is defined by means of the \(R\)-matrix given by FRT for root systems of type \(B\). An explicit basis for the deformed function algebra of \(\text{SO}_q (3)\) is constructed as well as an algorithm to reduce any expression in the generators to a linear combination of basis elements.
