The Communist Party of Turkey (website) was founded in 1993 as
the Party of Socialist Power (Sosyalist
İktidar Partisi). The
present name was adopted in 2001, during the 6th
Congress of the party.
The party split in 2014 into the KP and the HTKP.

Along with different flags with golden emblem on red field, the participants of the rally were carrying the flags with the party emblem in red, placed on the top of a wide golden vertical stripe. The stripe is placed in the hoist, close to the edge but not along it. According to the images seen on the party website (no longer available online), this flag contains no inscriptions.
The party emblem remained the same as before the name change. The party flags must have looked almost the same before the name change, except the acronym of the party.
