About the flag

The flag of P.D.P. is shown in both ballot papers reported (#11 in Bissau-28 and #10 in Bissau-29). It is a light green flag white tree and the letters "PDP" set in black serif extra wide capitals on an irregular golden yellow top stripe separated from the main area by white edging. The flag ratio is roughly square unlike others’ in the ballot papers. The party emblem is the tree lined in light green on white/transparent background (with the gaps between the boughs filled in light green).
