Introduction: German Pirate Party
Piratenpartei Deutschland

The German Pirate Party (Piratenpartei Deutschland) was founded on 2006-09-10, not long after several similar parties were started in other countries, like France and Sweden. Currently it is one of the most successful Pirate Parties, having elected representation in four state parliaments (Berlin, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland and Schleswig-Holstein). Source: Pirate Party at Wikipedia.
The most widespread flag (see image above) is orange, with the party signet, as they call it, in center hoist and inscription PIRATEN PARTEI written in two rows from the signet towards the fly. All charges are in white and black. The ratio is 2:3.
Among its innumerable photos on the Web, some good examples can be seen at the DRadio Wissen website, Hamburger Abendblatt Online, and corcordis.de photography.

From what I know, they have some seats in some regional parliaments, the Landtag in the Saarland, Schleswig-Holstein and Berlin, but they do not yet a seat in the federal parliament, the Bundestag. However, I don't think they see themselves as regional political parties, so possibly they can be just called a political party currently holding parliamentary seats

The Pirate Party Germany is currently a national German opposition party. It is active throughout Germany. In four states (Bundesländer): Schleswig-Holstein, North Rhine-Westphalia, Berlin and Saarland., this party has seats in their state parliaments. In the fall of 2013, the Pirate Party has ambitions to move into the federal parliament (Bundestag).

Aparently a much less used flag, considering the frequency of its appearances on Google image searches, is charged only with large signet in center.

The plain Pirate Party flag variant also appears sometimes with a simplified signet [also used on the PD car flag variant mentioned directly below] at demonstrations and rallies. Sources: At the Demonstration Against Surveillance and both party flags can be seen together at the Pirate Party website.
