Flag of the Socialist Party of Serbia - Image by Ivan Sarajčić & Tomislav Todorović, 10 June 2006
The party flag is the national flag of Serbia with the logotype of the party (SPS monogram) on the blue stripe and the party name on the white stripe. The flag flies over the party headquarters in Belgrade.
Uros Vasiljević & Ivan Sarajčić, 1 January 1999
The light gray part of the logotype should actually be white, with a black fimbriation, but is usually shown as here, probably to make it more visible against a white background when the logotype is used as a free-standing emblem. The colours of the logotype are consequently those of the Serbian national flag.

The Statutes of the party, adopted during its Second Congress held on October 23 and 24, 1992 in Belgrade, say:
Article 4. The symbol of the Socialist Party of Serbia shall be a red rose.
The flag of the Socialist Party of Serbia shall be the Serbian tricoloured flag with the Party emblem.
The emblem of the Party shall have the letters "SPS" inscribed below the Party symbol.

Former flag of the Socialist Party of Serbia (1990-1992), as used - Image by Mark Sensen & Tomislav Todorović, 3 April 2006
The flag which the Socialist Party of Serbia used in
real life from 1990 to 1992 has differed from its
description in the party statutes (see below), as it was not
charged with the party symbol (red five-pointed star
with the border in colours of Serbian flag), but with
the party emblem, which differed from the symbol by
addition of party name initials SPS, in white Cyrillic
letters (СПС), in centre of the red star. (Actually, the
symbol has never appeared either on the flags or as
the stand-alone sign.) The fimbriation, which
separated outermost red border of the emblem from the
same-coloured background, was not specified by the
statutes, but was always gold.
The flag was officially abolished in 1992, but its existing copies were kept in use until as late as 1997, when they were seen on the TV for the last time.
