Overview

PSd'Az (Partito Sardo d'Azione = Sardinian Action Party)

The PSd'Az is a social-liberal regionalist party in Sardegna, originally founded in 1921. It started strong after WW2, but declined in the 1970s; the 1980s brought some gains, though. Currently the PSd'Az holds 5 seats in the regional parliament. The party was usually allied with left parties, but recently it allied itself with the center-right.

The flag of the PSd'Az is one of the oldest political flags in Italy continuously in use. Early photographs already show the general design of the flag [1,2]. The flag is a version of the Sardinian flag with the four Moors. It is usually square, white with a red cross and a black border, and the Moor's heads in the corners [3,4,5]. The party symbol shows the party flag surrounded by party name and abbreviation.
