Logo of UDC (Unione Democristiana e di Centro), the coalition of several Christian-democratic parties (especially CDU and CCD); no flag found.
M. Schmöger, 12 July 2002

UDC ("Unione Democristiana e di Centro" = Christian-Democratic Union and of Center), formerly "Biancofiore" (Whiteflower). Originally founded as "Biancofiore" (White flower), the UDC is a sub-coalition of the "Casa delle Libertà" joining together parties claiming heritage of the old DC ("Democrazia Cristiana" = Christian Democracy). The more left-wing fission products of the DC belong to "L'Ulivo", sub-coalition "Margherita". The UDC (indeed only the CCD and the CDU) currently holds 40 out of 630 seats in the Camera dei Deputati and 29 out of 325 in the Senato. In the European Parliament the CCD and CDU deputies belong to the European People's Party (Christian Democrats).
The logo brings together the symbols of the participating parties: in one version only the symbols of the CCD and the CDU, in another version including the symbols of the DE as well. The first variant of the logo can be found at The other variant at
