The ratio is 2:3, as stated at the party online shop The same design serves as the party logo, although the form is usually more oblong then.

Old flag

The original party flag had also displayed the logo in white on green field, but the color shade was darker and the inscription was actually *d'66*, as the party name was originally spelled Democrats '66 (/Democraten '66/). A different typeface was used as well, the apostrophe having been placed so as to form the topmost part of the letter *d* and the digits *66* made smaller and set into a "superscript" position. While the logo was centered vertically, it was placed so that its part comprising the vertical stroke of letter *d*, the apostrophe and two digits be centered horizontally. The photos of this flag can be found here and here and the photos of the party poster from the 1967 general elections campaign, which also used this logo as the central feature, can be found here, here, and here.

Gay flags

The party also has a LGBT-related flag, derived from the Gay Rainbow Flag by adding the party logo into the canton, with a white fimbriation around. There are two variants of the design, one with green field of the logo visibly darker than the green stripe, as shown here, here, here and here and the other, with the same shade of green in both fields, as shown here and here. Both variants are used together, as seen in the photo galleries from Amsterdam Gay Pride 2014 as well as the Amsterdam Gay Pride 2015: and Amsterdam Gay Pride 2016
