Partido Movimiento de Unidad Costeña

The Partido Movimiento de Unidad Costeña (PAMUC) was established in 2000 in the North Atlantic Autonomous Region.

The flag of the PAMUC is prescribed in Article 40 of the party's Statutes.
The PAMUC is identified by a rectangular flag composed of three vertical stripes, dark green at the left side, white in the center, charged with a white dove with raised wings and holding a branch of laurel in the beak, and blue at the right side. In the flag's center, surrounding the dove, three yellow stars forming a shield around the dove.
The symbols mean: Green, the land of Costa Atlántica; white with the dove, victory and aspired peace; blue, the Nicaraguan sky and sea; and the three stars, the three Regions of Costa Atlántica.

Oddly enough, the flag featured on the Statutes does not match the official description, the colors are greenish and purple, the stars are white, and there is another two stars in each of the colored stripes.
PAMUC Statutes, Electoral Supreme Council

The flag in use does not match either the description or the image in the Statutes; the white stripe being charged in the center with the dove flying to the hoist and surmounted by eight black stars arranged in a semi-circular pattern.
