Verdi–Grüne–Vërc ("Greens" in Italian/German/Ladin)
The South Tyrolean Greens are active since 1978, but only adopted their current name in 1993. The are not only leftist and environmentalist, but they are especially in favour of crossing the bridge between the different ethno-linguistic groups of South Tyrol (much in contrast to the other parties that are catering to either the German-speaking or the Italian-speaking part). They currently hold 2 seats in the provincial parliament, as well as 1 seat in the Camera dei Deputati. Although part of the all-Italian Federazione dei Verdi, they have considerable autonomy.
The party symbol is green with a white dove and the party name in white (in all three languages). The flag is a banner-of-arms [1,2,3], but the shade of green is much different from the one in the symbol.
