by Volker Moerbitz Keith
Despite their political differences, both the West German CDU and the East German CDU used the same name and united with the German unification.

A blue flag with two Israel-like yellow stripes and the CDU symbol in center. The symbol showed a dove and the letters CDU, in the upper half surrounded by the words EX ORIENTE PAX (peace comes from the East i.e. from the Soviet Union), all yellow on blue.

According to Günther 2000, the flag should be blue with yellow stripes at the top and the bottom (striped blue-yellow-blue-yellow-blue in proportions 1+1+8+1+1) and the logo in the center. There also was a simplified variant without the dove and the ex oriente pax.
