[GroenLinks flag] Tomislav Todorović, 19 Mar 2017

GreenLeft (/GroenLinks/) was founded in 1989 by fusion of four leftist parties:

  • the Communist Party of the Netherlands (/Communistische Partij Nederland/),
  • the Pacifist Socialist Party (/Pacifistisch Socialistische Partij/),
  • the Political Party of Radicals (/Politieke Partij Radikalen/), and
  • the Evangelical People's Party (/Evangelische Volksparti/).
Its name, originally spelt as two words, spells since 1992 as one word, but with the initial letters of both component words capitalized. The party is a member of the Global Greens and the European Green Party. (Source: GreenLeft at Wikipedia)


GreenLeft uses a vertically divided red-green flag, with the party emblem in center. The emblem is a large white-bordered green disc, with a representation of sunrise in white and a white stripe over the sun rays, which is charged with two rows of text, party name at the top, painted in a "counter-colored" manner (*GROEN* in red and *LINKS* in green), and the motto *ZIN IN DE TOEKOMST* (literally, "Meaning in the future") at the bottom, in green colour. At the party website: shades of red and green are defined as the RGB values of 221-0-49 and 130-188-0, respectively. Photos of the flag can be found here.
