Richard Kuremaa (12 January 1912 – 10 January 1991) was an Estonian footballer - one of the most famous before World War II. He played 42 times for Estonia national football team scoring 19 goals. He debuted on 11 June 1933 in game versus Sweden. Until 1995 he was the all-time top scorer in Estonian premier division with 65 goals, but oddly he never won the top scorer award.
