The Rebirth Party was established on 8 October 2016 by Erhan Arıklı. The main aim of the party appears to be the defense of the rights of the Turkish settlers of Northern Cyprus, which feel discriminated by the Turkish Cypriots. A party with a very similar name (Yeniden Doğuş Partisi) and the very same aim existed from 1985 to 1993.

The flag of YDP, hoisted vertically (photo, photo), is white with the party's emblem and name.
The emblem of the party is made of a thin blue crescent pointing upwards, surrounding a Y-shaped blue torch with a red flame.
