In November 1989, the peaceful revolution took place in East Germany. On the 17th December 1989 the name of the Socialist Unity Party of Germany was altered to Socialist Unity Party of Germany-Party of Democratic Socialism (Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands-Partei des Demokratischen Sozialismus or SED-PDS). As early as 4th February 1990 the name was changed again to simply Party of Democratic Socialism (Partei des Demokratischen Sozialismus or PDS). The party used a red flag with a white canton, in the canton the red initials PDS. Since 1993, the white initials are used alone on the red field.
