Partido Democrático para o Progresso / Aliança Nacional de Angola (PDP-ANA)

Partido Democrático para o Progresso / Aliança Nacional de Angola, (Democratic Party for Progress / National Alliance of Angola) - this party might or might not have a flag. I say this because the site of the Angolan parliament has an image defined in the page code, but the image isn't there. So I cannot confirm what the image is.

The PDP-ANA is a right-of-center humanist grouping led by a prominent university professor, Nfulumpinga Lando Victor, who was previously affiliated with the FNLA. In mid-1992 Victor was named as a presidential candidate. However there were no reports of his having received any votes in the September balloting, following which the party secured one seat in the Angolan National Assembly.

Partido Renovador Democrático (PRD)

Partido Renovador Democrático (Party of Democratic Renewal) has a blue flag with the party symbol in the center. The source isn't clear enough to understand what's that symbol respresents.  It looks like a seal of some sort, with the internal background in red and what might be, (I'm speculating here), a pair of grasping hands. It is impossible to produce an image with any degree of accuracy.

The PRD was formed by survivors and sympathizers of the dissident MPLA-PT Nito Alves faction whose abortive 1977 coup d'etat  led to a violent purge of the parent party leadership. In 1991 the PRD was reported to be regarded by Luanda's diplomatic community as the best organized of the "emergent" parties. In September 1991 the PRD was the first party sanctioned by the Supreme Court to begin gathering the signatures necessary to secure legal status. In July 1992 PRD leader Luís da Silva dos Passos predicted that the PRD would win 20 percent of the vote at the forthcoming elections and then align with UNITA. However, Dos Passos' presidential vote share was less than 2 percent, with the party capturing only seat in the Angolan National Assembly
