Flag of SD, first and second flag - Images by Ivan Sarajčić, Tomislav Todorović & Mladen Mijatov, 17 Hovember 2005
The flag of Social Democracy is very dark blue (on TV it looks even black), in proportions 1:2, with the party name near the hoist, and a white stylized rose.
Ivan Sarajčić, 24 September 1999
Another flag of the Socialdemocracy has the same charges, with different sizes and positions, on the field in the same colour. Arranged in this way, the charges were used as the party logotype since the party's founding in 1997, but seem to have appeared on the flag later. According to the magazine Kvadart (Belgrade), 18, p. 94, February 2003, the logotype was created by Radomir Vuković, a designer from Belgrade. The first appearance of this flag which I have recorded was at the TV reports from the rally in Belgrade, before the Federal Assembly building, on 5 October 2001, commemorating the anniversary of the 2000 revolution. Some photos which could be seen on the party website were clearly taken on 5 October 2000, so the flag must have been already in use at that time. During the following years, it has replaced the earlier version of the party flag and nowadays it seems to be the only one in use.
