Founded 18 January 1994, Dissolved 6 December 2002 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Democratic_Centre
CCD ("Centro Cristiano Democratico" = Christian Democratic Center www.ccd.it
- no longer available)
When the DC renamed itself in January 1994 into PPI the right wing of the party (under Pierferdinando Casini) split off as CCD, and joined the election coalition of Berlusconi (then named Polo della libertà e del buon governo). Again for the 1996 and the 2001 elections the CCD joined the respective center-right coalitions led by Berlusconi (together with the CDU). The current leader is Marco Follini.
The logo shows - beside the name and abbreviation of the party - a white sail on blue, the sail containing stripes in the national colours and a blue escutcheon with white cross. The logo at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Democratic_Centre. The flag is basically a "banner-of-arms" of the logo. It could be bought at www.ccd.it/gadget.htm for 25000 LIT (about 13 EURO).
