About the Flag

CVP (Christlichdemokratische Volkspartei der Schweiz)
PDC (Parti démocrate-chrétien)
PPD (Partito popolare democratico svizzero)
PCD (Partida cristiandemocratica Svizra)
(Christian-democratic People's Party of Switzerland)

This is the smallest of the "big four" parties in Switzerland. It has a Christian-Democratic program. Currently it has 28 seats in the 200-seat lower chamber of the Swiss Parliament (Nationalrat = National Council). One CVP member is minister in the federal government (Bundesrat = Federal Council).

The flag is square and shows the party logo on a white field. The party logo is orange with the abbreviation of the party in white and a partly visible Swiss cross in the fly. Although the logo comes in all four official languages of Switzerland [1], the flag apparently is available only in the German version [2] with the inscription "CVP" and the French version [3] with the inscription "PDC".
