La Destra (The Right)
La Destra is a right-wing party with neo-fascist tradition, founded in 2007 as a split from AN, under the leadership of Francesco Storace. It has contested elections usually in alliances with other right-wing parties (like the MSFT) or in a broader alliance with the center-right (as in the February 2013 elections). It currently holds no seat in the Camera dei Deputati or the Senato.
The party symbol shows a yellow hand with torch on blue, over a fluttering Italian flag; the party name in white. The symbol has slightly changed several times, the current one also includes the leader's name. Different from fascist traditions (tending to black), the party flags have always been white with the respective logo [1,2,3,4].
