About the Flag

Another right-wing party in Ticino is "Il Guastafeste" (roughly translated to "The Party Pooper"). This small party was founded in 1997 and is mainly xenophobic. It has not gained any seat on the federal or cantonal level, usually reaching about 0,4-0,6% of the Ticinese votes.

The symbol is circular and shows a fierce-looking dog with a bone between its teeth. The party leader claims that the party has no flag [1], but a photo shows otherwise [2].

In another e-mail, the party leader admitted that the reported photo [2] indeed shows a flag with the party logo, but the flag is a single item [3].
