The symbol of the original association was a very stylized black eagle with the white letters "DVU". There were associated organizations with different, but similar symbols. After the foundation as party in 1987 a capital letter "D" in the German national colours black-red-gold under the black inscriptions "DVU" and "Deutsche Volksunion" became the party symbol and remained largely unaltered until now.
The party is not known for widespread flag use, in contrast to the NPD. Officially, only the German national flag is used , which is also in contrast to the NPD, as that party is currently favouring black-white-red over black-red-gold.
At rare occasions white clothes with the logo of the time were used
during indoor manifestations, usually as wall or balcony drapings. This
was done with the old eagle logo  and later with the newer "D" logo
[3,4]. Sometimes the latter is also used as a "real" flag during outdoor
