Description of the flags

Two conflicting flag designs to be reported, both differing from the 2001 design. There’s a basic similarity between both designs, the blue-bordered yellow disc. This might imply a change of symbols in the meantime between both sources.

Version in official leaflet

Leaflet [t9l07] and the voting bulletin show a different flag, also white with a different logo and lettering: yellow disc rimmed in dark blue with a windrose star on it, red-bordered white, longer tips for the cardinal directions, borderless white, shorter for the collateral directions, and a white dove flying, outlined in black, on a white disc on its center. Letters "Partido Democrata Cristão" arched above and around the disc (from 8 to 4 o’clock) and "PDC" straight under it, all set in black serif capitals; red scroll bellow all with "Luta ba isin no klamar", in smaller similar letters.

Version at the parliament website

At the parliament website the flag is ~3:4 white with a large yellow disc rimmed in light blue and charged with a brown Latin cross (not reaching the edges) and lettering "Partido Democrata Cristao" (sic!) and "(PDC)" in two lines set in red sans serif capitals. I’m not fully sure that this is a flag design rather than just a logotype, although almost all other such designs, at the the parliament website, are flags.

Flag as of 2001

PDC flag image by Antonio Martins, 22 September 2001

The logo (and thus the flag?) of P.D.C. shows on a white background a large golden yellow disc and on it a brown cross couped. Arched above the disc, the black capital Tetum lettering "Memperjuangkan nilai-nilai Kekristenam", and, below the disc on a straight line, "PDC" in very thick and elongated black capitals.

A new party, the Democratic Progressive League is announced to have been created in June 2007 joining all six smaller parties which received no seats in the Parliament. No news for now about an emblem or flag.
