The Taiwan Solidarity Union was formed by Lee Teng Hui. For this reason, he was expelled from the Kuomintang. Lee, nominally, isn't holding a position in the TSU, but he was regarded as the leader of the party. The emblem is circular, with white background. On the top is an orange arch, its width approx. 1/3 of the circle's radius, occupying half of the circle's height. The lower part of the circle is B- waves, and in the center the map of Taiwan, occupying most of the height of the circle, in khaki.

Official interpretation:


The spherically shape symbolizes the consolidation, completion, and unity.

The island of Taiwan rises above the sun and the ocean. This picture represents the power to lift up Taiwan.

The blue strips under the rising sun represent the waves, which brings out the geographical characteristic of Taiwan strongly.

Also, the four strips of blue waves symbolize the political stability, the revivification of economy, democratic consolidation, and reinforcement of Taiwan. We stand for "Taiwan First" and this model is truly the base of our theory. Following this principle, we believe that Taiwan will eventually step on the international pedestal. Three white waves represent to unite, to build, and to cooperate.


The number 4 represents the amalgamation of four different cultural groups in Taiwan. Therefore, our standard party logo contains four different colors.

Khaki (main color): stands for the nature and mother earth that 23 million Taiwanese people were gestated. It also represents our love and total passion to this land. Orange (secondary color): Orange is the color of dawn. It represents the brightness and the new political atmosphere. Blue (secondary color): blue represents the greatness and the patient of the ocean. White (secondary color): white is the color of light. There are four strips of light within the ocean waves in our logo, which symbolizes hope and expectations of the future.
