Spanish Circle of Friends of Europe

Círculo Español de Amigos de Europa (CEDADE)

[CEDADE (Spain)]
image from

This was probably the first "modern" European neo-Nazi organization.

António Martins, 18 Apr 1998

The official flag of Cedade was all red with a golden "lifelike" eagle (ie. unlike the German 1933 national or party eagle), holding a yoke in its claws and with a golden torch behind it. I am not sure about the exact proportions of the flag (I assume 2:3) or of the eagle within it.

Santiago Dotor, 30 Sep 1998

CEDADE was founded in 1966 and formally disbanded in 1993.

Marcus Wendel, 07 Aug 1999

A page about the CEDADE association and magazine shows a detailed image of the organization's flag, shown in that website as 3:5, a ratio not frequent in Spanish flags. Possibly a 3:5 swastika flag was used as template.

Círculo de Estudios Indoeuropeos ("Circle of Indo-European Studies") is a national-socialist organization founded in 1997. It's not a political party, but a cultural movement, and it is legal and registered according to its website. The organization looks like a continuation of the disappeared CEDADE.

They use a "neo-Nazi style" flag: red field, central white circle with black symbol. The central emblem is composed of the joined letters "H" and a "A," standing for "Hereditas Ambitusque," Latin for "Inheritance and Scope" (i.e., "blood and land"). Photos of the flag in use: 1, 2 [links broken]

Or, in German, "Blut und Boden" – which sounds much more familiar.

Santiago Dotor, 30 Sep 2003

That's the usual fate of Neonazi organizations in most of Europe (at least): they start as "cultural" movements (usually with the same leaders as a previously outlawed Neonazi organization), and sooner or later they are disbanded for one or another excess in the pursuit of "culture"...

The Spanish red-yellow-red flag defaced with a Celtic cross on the yellow stripe is the flag of Bases Autónomas, a loose neo-Nazi organisation.

Víctor Godó, 06 Jan 1999

The Spanish flag , but with the Celtic cross fimbriated white and larger, protruding out of the yellow stripe.

The eagle seems to be a conflation of the Hapsburg eagle of Charles V and the Catholic Kings'/ Francoist eagle of St. John; if you look carefully, both heads appear to have haloes, which is not I believe a typical feature of Austrian eaglage, any more than polycephaly is of St. Johns'. This is mildly odd as the same rendition of eagle is used by Carlists, whom one would expect to be attuned to such things. Also odd – though I cannot say what if any the political implications are supposed to be –: the lesser national arms on the two "Carlist" flags lack the Bourbon inescutcheon.

National-Socialist Movement of the Basque Country

Movimiento Nacionalsocialista de Euskalherria

[Movimiento Nacionalsocialista de Euskalherria (Spain)]
image from, 30 May 2003

I've found this Nazi Basque flag that uses the Lauburu in lieu of the Nazi swastika. They call it "lauburu o esvástica vasca" (Lauburu or Basque swastika), and say it is the flag of the Movimiento Nacionalsocialista de Euskalherria ("National Socialist Movement of the Basque Country"). The site includes the construction sheet, and links to a page that shows more Nazi flags and a Basque CoA with the Lauburu/Nazi flag on top.

Francisco Santos, 30 May 2003

This party doesn't exist. The pages you are refering are made by persons unknown (there are some suspects whose identity I don't mention) to bring Basque nationalists into disrepute. Their contradictions are clear: they are speaking about Basque independence, but they are Spanish patriots.

Aingeru Astui Zarraga, 30 May 2003

I believe you are right, but somebody made a flag for it and published in a website. This is quite simple, and usual, in the internet.

Francisco Santos, 30 May 2003

This flag appeared in one of the most recent issues of Gaceta de Banderas [gdb].

There is a further "nationalsocialist flag of the Basque Country" ("Euskalherriko bandera Nazionalsozialista") at the Gipuzkoa Nazionalsozialista website.

Other (Putative) Basque Neo-Nazi Flags

Further images of (real or alleged) Basque nationalsocialist flags from The shade of red used on the second flag is probably unintentionally dark.

The "arrano beltza" (black eagle, alleged symbol of the early Navarrese kings) as it is usually shown on Basque independentist flags, i.e. on a yellow field, but with the black "lauburu" on the canton.

A NSDAP-like flag, red with a white central disc, within it the "arrano beltza;" black "lauburu" on the canton.

Basque "ikurriña" (red flag with white cross and green saltire) with black swastika on a small white square canton.

Santiago Dotor, 27 Jun 2003

The "Basque Nationalsocialist Party" doesn't exist. These flags are created by persons unknown to poison and to bring into disrepute Basque nationalists.
