Die Sozialistische Jugend (solid)

One of the big winners of the German elections on 18 September 2005 was the Linkspartei (Left Party), basically the former Party of Democratic Socialism (PDS). They changed their name in July 2005 to accomplish a unification of the party with the new West German left movement Labour and Social Justice - the Electoral Alternative, or WASG (Arbeit & soziale Gerechtigkeit - Die Wahlalternative), that also includes former SPD Chairman Oskar Lafontaine.

Description of the Left Party Flag

The new name Linkspartei, short for The Left (Die Linke), brought about the change of the logo and therefore the flag as well. The party flag now shows the white inscription DIE LINKE. on red. There is a horizontal and a vertical variant of the flag.
