"Fronte Sociale Nazionale" (National Social Front, a.k.a. "Fronte Nazionale" www.frontenazionale.it) - The
neo-fascist "Fronte Nazionale" has been founded in 1997 as a fission from the
MSFT, and renamed itself into "Fronte Sociale Nazionale" in 2001. There had been
several other groups in the past using the name "Fronte Nazionale". The name has
been chosen to recall the French "Front National" of Le Pen. In the 2001
elections the party got 0,06% and 0,3% of the votes (Camera and Senato,
respectively). The symbol shows - beside the inscriptions "FN" and "Fronte
Sociale Nazionale" - a largely stylized tricoloured flame recalling the old MSI
symbol. I have not found any flag. The symbol is described in the statute (Art.
3) at www.frontenazionale.it/statuto.htm:
"Il Fronte ha per simbolo una figura geometrica, recante i
colori della bandiera nazionale verde, bianco e rosso, con i
vertici allungati verso l'alto, che poggia su di una base formata
dalle lettere FN, il tutto inscritto in un cerchio contenente le
parole "FRONTE SOCIALE NAZIONALE"." (The Fronte
has as symbol a geometric figure, showing the colours of the
national flag green, white and red, with the apexes elongated to
the top, which rests upon a base formed of the letters FN, the
whole inscribed in a circle containing the words "FRONTE

Flag (?) at Website (Previous?)

I don't think that the flag that can be seen at www.frontenazionale.it/ordinazioni.htm
is the "flag" of the Fronte Nazionale. All the photos at their website
consistently show a different flag, namely a blue (sometimes perhaps a black?)
field with (a variant of) the logo in the center. See www.frontenazionale.it/sala.jpg, immagi4.jpg, Image6.jpg, immagi5.jpg
and more. What was reported, although the filename is
"bandiera.jpg", is probably a symbol used for election
posters or for the internet (similar to the English use of the
word "banner" in the latter context).

There is some confusion between Fronte Nazionales and Fronte sociale
Nazionale. Fronte Nazionale, I believe, has black, white red flag. When renamed
Fronte sociale in 2001 the flag used was the blue one but frequently with the
old emblem. The black, white red colors seems to be the main colors in web.tiscali.it
and with the emblem of the Fronte Sociale, as flag, in www.frontenazionale.it/assprog.jpg.
An unclear photo can be see in www.misteriditalia.com.
The blue flag can be partially viewed at www.farefronte.it.
