Flag of AAK - Image by António Martins, 2 May 2017
The Alliance for the Future of Kosovo (website) was formed on 29 April 2001.
The flag of AAK (photo, photo) is white with the party's logo (image).
Esteban Rivera, 4 January 2017
The original party's flag (photo) was white with the red letters "AK" in the center.
The logo contains a black "shadow" which is "cast" by letter "A" onto the white field, while letter "K" is not accompanied with one. This was certainly done in order to include both of Albanian national colors into the logo. The same "shadow" also appears in the current logo, although it is not so easy to recognize it immediately, due to dark blue field.

Flag of PDK - Image by Tomislav Todorović, 29 June 2019
The PDK was founded on 14 May 1999 as the political branch of the UÇK (Kosovo Liberation Army). Originally named the Party for the Democratic Progress of Kosovo (Partia për Progres Demokratik e Kosovë, PPDK), the party adopted its current name when formally constituted, on 21 May 2000.
Chaired by Hashim Thaçi, the former commander of the UÇK, the PDK won 27.3% of the votes cast in the 2000 local elections, 28.9% in 2004 and 34.3% in 2007. On 9 January 2008, Thaçi was elected Prime Minister by the Parliament of Kosovo, which proclaimed the independence of Kosovo on 17 January 2008.
The flag of PDK (photo, 2 July 2007), is white with the emblem of the party in the middle.

The party also uses a white flag with the party's logo, composed of a sans-serif red "V", looking as if composed of two brush strokes, and the sans-serif black letters "PDK" (20 minutos de Madrid y mas, 14 November 2001; photo of a polling station, 2007).
At about the same time as this flag, a version with different colors could have been seen in the TV news reports, which had red field (about the same shade as in Albanian flag) and golden letter "V", while the initials "PDK" were black there, too.

Flag of LDD - Image by Ivan Sache, 9 March 2009
The LDD was founded in January 2007 as a splinter of the Democratic
League of Kosovo (Lidhja Demokratike e Kosovës, LDK), the party once presided by the historical leader Ibrahim Rugova.
Chaired by Nexhat Daci, Speaker of the Assembly of Kosovo in
2001-2006, LDD has 11 seats (ex-LDK) in the Parliament of Kosovo.
LDD merged on 30 April 2015 with the Democratic League of Kosovo.
LDD uses both the Dardania flag and a white flag with the emblem and name of the party (in Albanian on the first line, in English on the second line).
The emblem of the party is made of the three interlaced letters "L", "D" and "D".
The seal, logo and flag of LDD were prescribed in Article 4 of the Statutes of the party, without further description.

Flag of EFSK, two versions - Images by Ivan Sache, 16 November 2018
The European Solidarity Front for Kosovo was founded in 2013 to
help the minority of the Serbian people, who still lives in their holy
land of Kosovo and Metohija.
The ESFK is a solidarity community that would like to work for the support of those who need help to survive and build up a future in Kosovo. Currently the ESFK has members in Germany, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
In the past years we organized a couple of different missions. During this operations we was able to help many families, schools and other institutions in the Serbian “enclaves”.
The EFSK was classified among right-wing extremist movements in the
"Report on Extremism in the Territory of the Czech Republic in 2013" (text), issued in 2013 by the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic.
An interview of Carlo Pezzolesi, an Italian neo-fascist militant member of the EFSK (Center for Syncretic Studies, 16 February 2014), leaves little doubt on the orientation of the movement:
European Solidarity Front for Kosovo (ESFK) was founded in 2013 "following the example of previous successful establishment of the European Front for Solidarity with Syria in which the founders have created this new project and political solidarity to a question that we all had at heart and that is the sovereignty Serbia in the land of her most sacred region of Kosovo and Metohija ... The intent of the project of the European Front for Kosovo and Metohija is to be present to build and give voice and hope to those who suffer today this criminal New World Order that stole the soul of Serbia. We believe in all this, every day more and more, in Kosovo as in Italy, we men and women of the descendants of those nations that once formed the peoples of Europe.
The flag of the EFSK (photo,
photo) is white with the movement's emblem in the center. The emblem is composed of a map of Kosovo in the Serbian colors (horizontally divided red-blue-white) superimposed with the national
coat of arms of Serbia. The movement's name is written in the ring that
surrounds the map, "EUROPEAN SOLIDARITY" in red, "FRONT FOR KOSOVO" in blue.
The flag is also used with the writing in German, "EUROPÄISCHE SOLIDARITÄTSFRONT FÜR KOSOVO" (photo, photo).
