Party of the Liberal Front

[Flag of the Party of the Liberal Front (Brazil)]
by Guillermo Tell Aveledo

The flag of the PFL (Partido da Frente Liberal) tries to emulate (purportedly) the Brazilian flag. In my opinion, it does not seem to have that effect. However, it is a nice flag.
Guillermo Tell Aveledo, 18 September 2000

This major neoliberal party is the second largest in Congress, having won 84 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and 14 in the Senate in the 2002 elections.
Joseph McMillan, 5 November 2002

Brazilian Labor Party

Another big party, and still around the center-left area, is the the PTB (Brazilian Labor Party). The flag is a well-known black-white-red vertical tricolour (with the central stripe wider than the others, at least that's how it looks in the pictures I found on the web [but see below--Ed.]) with the initials in black at the center.
Jorge Candeias, 29 April 1999

Despite the name, a center-right party with leftist historical roots. 
Joseph McMillan, 16 April 2001

The flag is defined by Article 4 of the party statutes: "The PTB flag is a pennant (flāmula) [sic] composed of three equal vertical stripes, black, white, and red, with the initials PTB in the center, obliquely, in black." The PTD elected 26 deputies and 2 senators in the 2002 elections.
