The flag of Izquerda Unida (United Left) party / coalition
is a horizontal tricolour of yellow red and green with the
symbol centered, which consists of the bolivian map in white
outlined black containing the letters "IU" in red, except the
dot of the "I", which is yellow with a green ring, and the
name below in yellow: "IZQUIERDA UNIDA". The
overall proportions are about 1:2. This flag is obviously based on the
1826 bolivian flag.
Speculating a bit, I’d say that it has something to do with
the wish for a connection with revolution and revolutionnary
movements as part of the world’s left-wing immaginary.
