Flags of the Christian-Democratic Movement - Images by Eugene Ipavec, 5 January 2010
The Christian-Democratic Movement is a political party in Georgia, founded in February 2008 and led by Giorgi Targamadze, formerly a Imedi TV anchor who had once been a Member of the Parliament of Georgia and a close ally of Aslan Abashidze, then a regional leader of Adjara.
At the May 21 2008 Georgian legislative election, the party was one of several opposition parties to gain seats in Parliament. However the opposition parties as a whole had such small representation, after elections they considered rigged, that almost all the elected MPs renounced their mandates. The Christian Democrat members however chose to retain their seats, and the party has thus become the main opposition to the ruling United National Movement in Parliament, often referred to as the "Parliamentary Opposition.

As shown on a photo available on the party's website, the party uses two flags.
The first flag is dark red with a white cross fimbriated by two thin black and white stripes, and an emblem, made of a dark red cross fimbriated in gold and inscribed in a golden ring fimbriated in black, in the middle.
The second flag is white with a dark red cross fimbriated by two thin white and black stripes, and the same emblem as on the first flag.
