Danish electoral semiotics

A part of the Danish electoral system: each party has a letter (as long as less than 30 parties stand), and that is what get most of the parties hype (instead of the party symbol/flag) - for obvious reasons.

Danmarks Nationalsocialistiske Bevaegelse (National Socialist Movement of Denmark

Socialist Movement of Denmark]

National Socialist Movement of Denmark /(Danmarks Nationalsocialistiske Bevaegelse)/ was founded in 1991 as the latest in the list of successor parties to the original National Socialist Workers' Party of Denmark (see WW2 Danish flags), which was disbanded in 1945 after the WW2 was ended. Its flag is red, with a white swastika within a ring in same color. The best photo of it which can be currently found is no longer on the Web; its original location was here and a miniature version can be still found at Google Image Search. (A copy of this photo.)
A close-up photo showing the flag charges: (Image) reveals that the swastika has visibly thinner arms than that on the German Nazi flag and that the ring is as wide as the arms. The whole device also seems to be somewhat smaller than the white disc on the German Nazi flag, as can be also seen on a photo from the party website: Another photo from the same source reveals that the shade of red is the same as on the national flag, while another one reveals that the flag is somewhat more oblong than the national flag.

Danmarks Socialdemokratiske Ungdom (Denmark's Social-democratic Youth)

Danmarks Socialdemokratiske Ungdom (Denmark's Social-democratic Youth), DSU, is the youth organisation of Socialdemokratiet (the Social-Democracy). At election times, they create mock film posters to express their views regarding the election. Their poster for the 2009 European Parliament elections included EU flags where the field had been changed to red, to symbolise a political left Europe, as opposed to the (not shown) EU flag, with it's blue field symbolising a political right Europe.

Humanist Party

This party popped up in Denmark in 1987, and stood at the general election that year. They only got some 5600 votes, got nobody elected, and died (more or less). I recall the infinity symbol. They used the letter "H" more than the symbol.
