The flag of Izquerda Unida (United Left) party / coalition is a horizontal tricolour of yellow red and green with the symbol centered, which consists of the bolivian map in white outlined black containing the letters "IU" in red, except the dot of the "I", which is yellow with a green ring, and the name below in yellow: "IZQUIERDA UNIDA". The overall proportions are about 1:2. This flag is obviously based on the 1826 bolivian flag. Speculating a bit, I’d say that it has something to do with the wish for a connection with revolution and revolutionnary movements as part of the world’s left-wing immaginary.
