Description of the Flag

The flag of KOTA shows the multicolor background consisting of five equal horizontal stripes (black, yellow, red, green and white) which curb to the upper fly in a perspective effect; three more stripes (dark blue, red and green) add to this effect from the bottom fly (being thus rather triangles, not stripes). Over all, the party emblem: a white disc bordered in dark blue with the party name arced around the upper outside of the disc in bold white captals. On the disc, a traditional Timorese house, two crossed clubs, and a kaibauk (a traditional Timorese symbol of authority); on the border 33 small yellow stars(?) — I dont know the meaning of this number 33, it is neither the number of districts (13) nor their subdivisions (64). On the black stripe, at the hoist, a yellow 32-rayed sun and the lettering "KOTA" in uppercase squeezed white sans capitals.

Presentation of KOTA

KOTA got 7735 votes in the 2001.08.30 elections (2,13%), recieving 2 of 88 seats in the parlament. Though is was created still during the indonesian occupation, being thus one of the “traditional” parties, it is one of the small parties in parlament. The name of this party seems to be exclusively in Tetum, and I cannot translate it.
