Flag of the Democratic Left Party

The flag of the Democratic Left Party (DSP), adopted in 1985, is blue with a white dove representing peace, and the red letters "DSP". The image above was redrawn based on an image found on the party website. The flag is also used without lettering, as seen on 24 April 2013 at the party's office in Kuşadası.
Blue is traditionally associated with Ecevit's followers and together with white belongs to the Trade Union Confederation Türkë. The two colours symbolize the union of DSP with the trade unionist and Socialist movement.
