Pirate Party

Pirate Party (Swedish: Piratpartiet) was founded in 2006. As the oldest of the Pirate parties, it has been the model to similar parties worldwide. Although currently still not represented in the Riksdag, it has more members than many parliamentary parties and is represented in the European Parliament since 2009.

Party flag

Flag of Pirate Party is purple, with large logo in center. The logo is a white disk with a narrow black border, charged with a black sail on the mast, shaped so as to resemble letter P. Photos of the flag can be seen here, here and here.
This design is copied by Pirate parties in other countries, often unchanged, sometimes modified. Flag image is derived from the SVG image of  the party logo from Wikipedia

Variant flag

A frequently used variant has smaller logo set near the hoist and the party name inscribed in white between the logo and the fly. It is offered for sale at the party Web shop, as shown here and here.
A photo of the flag in use can be found here. The typeface used may vary, even on the flags offered at the party Web shop, as shown here.
Photos of such flags can be found here, here and here.

Vertical flag variants

Vertical variants, with the logo at the top and the party name inscribed between the logo and the bottom (text rotated 90 degrees clockwise compared with the horizontal inscriptions), are very frequently used. A less oblong sub-variant, with the inscription closer to the logo, seems to be always hoisted like the German /Auslegerflaggen/, only with the sleeves for both the flagpole and the outrigger. The photos of this flag can be found here, here, here, and here.
A more oblong sub-variant, with larger distance between the inscription and the logo, is often hoisted like the German /Knatterflaggen/, only with the sleeve for the flagpole, but just like the previously described flag, may also be hoisted like the /Auslegerflaggen/ with the sleeves for both the flagpole and the outrigger. Hoisted with the flagpole only, it is shown here, here, and here; and with both the flagpole and the outrigger, it can be seen here and here.
Both images are derived from the SVG image of the party logo from Wikipedia.
Different variants of the party flag are frequently used together, as can be seen here, here and here.

LGBT-related flags

At LGBT-related events, members of the party use, along with the regular flags, several variants derived from the Gay Pride / Rainbow Flag by adding the modified party logo, which consists of the sail on the mast within a ring, all in black. Flags with large logo on rainbow field, violet on the top, can be found here: http://www.annatroberg.se/2013/08/05/piratpartiet-i-prideparaden-bilder/ and here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nordenfur/9595639896/.

The logo may also be combined with the party name, inscribed below in black. The typeface is the same as on the regular party flag. This combination seems to be used only with red color at the top.

The party name can be inscribed beneath the logo on vertical flags, too. This combination seems to be used only with violet color at the left-hand side.
