The Flag 

The Partai Keadilan Sejahtera ("Prosperous Justice Party," PKS) seems to have at least two flags in use: white with logo and electoral symbol (the number 8), and a much flashier design with the logo in a shield with white and orange rays emanating from it. There is also a line of text above the shield on the latter, but I cannot make it out.

AA former Justice Party ("Partai Keadilan"), founded in 1998, was reconstituted in June 2002 as the "Partai Keadilan Sejahtera" (PKS, Prosperous Justice Party), led by Tifatul Sembiring. An Islamic party, the PKS on 45 out of the 500 seats in the 2004 general election. As shown on several photographs available on the party website, the PKS uses the same kind of flag as its forerunner, white with the party emblem in the middle. The party emblem is the same as the "Partai Keadilan" emblem, with "Sejahtera" added below the rice panicle flanked by the two crescents. It is not possible to see on the photographs if the emblem was also updated on party flags.

Variant flags

On another flag which the party has used in the 2009 election campaign, the party logo is placed between the party name initials, arranged vertically, and the electoral symbol (number 8). The Wikipedia image: which is composed of several photos of Indonesian political flags flown in Jakarta during the campaign, shows that the whole device is set off-centre, close to the fly edge. The folded top fly corner of the flag reveals that this is not just an optical illusion produced by the flag's fluttering in the wind.

Here is another flag of the Prosperous Justice Party, a political party from Indonesia. It is a variant of the flag already described. Another variant of this flag, with number 8 in gold and fimbriated black, was seen in a brief block of news reports without comments, which was broadcast in Serbia by B-92 TV station on 2011-03-28 about 20:00. The report was from the protests, which took place in Jakarta a day earlier, against the current NATO military intervention in Libya. In the sea of flags with this or similar design, only this one was shown long enough to be well determined, but their number, as well as the seeming absence of other parties' flags, suggests that the protests were organized and attended by the supporters of the Prosperous Justice Party.

The Justice Party (Partai Keadilan) was reconstituted in 2002 as the Prosperous Justice Party (Partai Keadilan Sejahtera). The emblem of the reconstituted party is obviously derived from that of its predecessor, which is shown at:
