Flag of the Sandžak Democratic Party - Image by Mirsad Jusufović, Tomislav Todorović & Mladen Mijatov, 7 September 2005
The Sandžak Democratic Party (Sandžačka demokratska partija) was founded in 1997 as the Sandžak Coalition (Koalicija Sandžak). The present party name was adopted in 2000.
Tomislav Todorović, 7 September 2005
The President of the Sandžak Democratic Party is Dr Rasim Ljajić, Serbia and Montenegro actual Federal Ministry for Human Rights and National Minorities. The party has two seats in the Serbian Parliament (as of August 2003).
Mirsad Jusufović, 12 August 2003
The flag of the Sandžak Democratic Party is supposed to be mainly used vertically. It
is vertically divided yellow-blue with a green triangle charged with
a yellow fleur-de-lis in upper part. When hoisted horizontally, the
flag must have the blue stripe above the yellow one, although some
yellow-blue flags were inadvertently produced. The fleur-de-lis shall
always point towards the shorter side of the flag, thereofre it is
displayed horizontally, facing the hoist, in horizontal flags.
The green triangle and the yellow fleur-de-lis should are obvious references to the Islamic religion and the Bosnian nation, respectively. The blue and yellow stripes indicate the European orientation of the party.

The party flag was adopted in 1997 as the flag of the Sandžak Coalition. The flag remained unchanged when the name of the party was changed to Sandžak Democratic Party.
Variant fo the flag of the Sandžak Democratic Party - Image by Tomislav Todorović, Mladen Mijatov & Željko Heimer, 16 December 2005
A new variant of the flag of the Sandžak Democratic
Party has appeared during the campaign for local
elections in Serbia, which took place in September
2004. It is supposed to be mainly used horizontally,
although its vertical hoisting was also seen. The flag
is horizotally divided, yellow over blue, with a green
triangle based at the hoist and charged with a yellow
fleur-de-lis in vertical position. When the flag is
hoisted vertically, blue is on the left-hand and
yellow on the right-hand side and the fleur-de-lys is
positioned vertically again, pointing towards the
hoist. The height of the triangle seems to be a bit
greater when the flag is hoisted vertically, so that
the fleur-de-lis can fit in.
The new variant of the flag is used along with the old one, as could be seen in the Belgrade magazine Reporter, #310, pp. 14-15, 22 September 2004.
