Partido Liberal Democrático (PLD)

In fifth place in the present Angolan Parliament is the PLD, that is, the Partido Liberal Democrático (Liberal Democratic Party). This party has 3 MPs and a website. It also has a flag that is a Blue over Orange diagonal with a thin White stripe running from upper hoist to lower fly. The blue area is charged with 18 white stars disposed in somewhat ragged rows of (from top to bottom) 7, 5, 3, 2 and 1 stars (curiously these are all prime numbers - I wander if this is on purpose?). The orange area is charged with the party symbol. Despite the existence of a relatively good image of this symbol in the party website, it is so complex that not all details are clearly identifiable and/or accurately drawable. In any case, it contains a white disc, two branches, probably laurel, a bird, eventually an eagle, with open wings ans holding a 5-pointed star that rests over a complex scroll that has something written, eventually the party initials (PLD). All this lies over the silhouettes of a man, a boy, a girl and a woman, which in turn stand over something black I assumed that was possibly the full name of the party. Everything is yellow outlined black, except the disc and the wording.
