Description of the Flag

At the Parliament website the flag shows in a proprietary MS Word vectorial format, which seems to be a variant or successor to the previous one. (This image is shown when client browser settings bar the vectorial display.) The changes include details in the shape of the bird, including disappeared head details (a drafting artifact?), and the shape of the flag, now a plain light blue pennant, no longer a light blue triangle on a white rectangle the three-word motto has also disappeared.

Previous flag

The flag shows a large light blue triangle on a white background (actually it seems like an uncropped pennant), charged with a white dove, lined black holding a scroll that reads "LIBERAL", flying towards a white five pointed star. On the white areas, black uppercase serif Tetum lettering was added, reading "RELIJIAUN" (religion) in the upper fly, "KULTURA" (culture) in the bottom fly, and "LIBERDADE" (freedom) at the hoist.

Presentation of P.L.

P.L. got 4013 votes in the 2001.08.30 elections (1.10%), recieving 1 of 88 seats in the parlament, where it is one of the very small parties. This is one of the few parties with its name officially in Tetum, not in Portuguese.
António Martins, 22 September 2001

This party has not run to the 2007.06.02 elections and is probably defunct, though it is still listed in the Parliament website.
