I saw a new flag of a Croatian political party on a TV news (HRT Dnevnik, 14 March 1998), the flag of the Socialist Workers' Party of Croatia (Socijalisticka radnicka partija Hrvatske, SRP)
SRP is lead by Stipe `uvar, who was one of the main Croatian politicians in former Yugoslavia, publicly better known by (generally considered unsuccessful) school reform in 1970's, and he was the last president of the presidency of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia (SKJ) before the break of SFRY. The party is of leftist orientation, by many media considered extreme left and more or less pro-Yugoslav (or "Yugonostalgic").
The flag of SRP is following traditional socialist rules - red flag with golden bordered 5-pointed star in the middle, with abbreviation SRP in canton.
The flag was hoisted on a party meeting in Pula (Istria, Croatia), together with the flag of Croatia (in the middle) and the flag of the city of Pula (to the left from observers point of view), thus following the proper ceremony (national flag in the middle, local administration flag to the left, party flag to the right).
