DE ("Democrazia Europea" = European Democracy www.democraziaeuropea.it) - The DE is a small Christian-democratic party, founded in 2000, under the leadership of Sergio d'Antoni (former leader of the CISL trade union) and Giulio Andreotti. For the 2001 elections it presented an own list, but failed at the 4%-hurdle (2,4% and 3,2% of the votes for the Camera and the Senato, respectively). It has recently joined the UDC coalition.

The logo shows on a blue background the name of the party (in white) and a white sail (?) with red cross, obviously an allusion to the old symbol of the "Democrazia Cristiana". A variant of the logo at cedweb.mininterno.it:8890. At www.democraziaeuropea.it/richiestadelsimbolo.asp they mention "bandiere" (flags) as "materiale elettorale" (election material), so I guess they indeed have flags. This is further substantiated by a photo at www.graffitipress.it . However, this photo is not sufficient to draw a good image of the flag.
