Overview

"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 SOCIALE NAZIONALE")

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.
