Description of the flag

The Popular Front of India (PFI) was founded on 22 November 2006 in Calicut by representatives of three Muslim organizations of southern India, the Karnataka Forum for Dignity (KFD, active in Karnataka), the National Development Front (NDF, active in Kerala) and the Manitha Neethi Pasarai (MNT, active in Tamil Nadu). The PFI has launched in 2009 a political party, the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI).

The flag of the PFI is presented on the organization's website as horizontally divided "deep green"-"deep red" with a white triangle placed along the hoist and charged with a blue star. White represents peace, "deep green" represents nature and prosperity, "deep red" represents struggle and sacrifice, while the blue star represents freedom.

The image gallery of the party's website shows several photos with the flag, which appears as dark green but not particularly dark red. The size of the star seems to vary from flag to flag

Variant Flag

There is also a version of the flag without the star. This flag seems to have been used by the components of the PFI, at least the KFD and the MNT, before the foundation of the PFI.
