About the Flag

Freisinnig-Demokratische Partei (FDP. Die Liberalen)
Parti libéral-radical (PLR. Les Libéraux-Radicaux)
Partito Liberale Radicale (PLR. I Liberali)
Partida Liberal Democratica (PLD. Ils Liberals)

The current FDP/PLR is the result of the merger of the former FDP/PRD/PLR with the smaller LPS / PLS in 2009. The old FDP/PRD/PLR is described at ch}fdp.html.

The FDP/PLR is one of the four large parties in the Swiss parliament, currently having 33 out of 200 seats. It also has two members in the federal government, the Federal Council (Bundesrat); one of them currently serves as the Federal President for 2016 (Johann Schneider-Ammann).

The current logo is the party abbreviation in the respective language in blue over a thin light-blue bar, all on a white field. Flag usage is somewhat low.
