Asturian Solidarity

Andecha Astur

[Asturian Solidarity (Asturias, Spain)]
by Lluis Nel, modified by Santiago Dotor

The flag reported by Dov Gutterman is that of Andecha Astur, an Asturian nationalist / independentist movement. Note also the flower-like symbol elsewhere in those pages, very similar to that of the Leonese Conceyu Xoven, not unusual since both of them support self-government etc. for Asturian/Leonese speaking regions.

Santiago Dotor, 21 June 1999

Andecha is an Asturian word meaning that a group of friends or neighbours from the same rural area or village help each other to pick and collect the corn of the neighbouring fields. Thus, Andecha will come to mean group work (in the expression trabayar en andecha) and Andecha Astur will mean group work for the development of Asturias and the Asturian national identity.

Asturian Nationalist Assembly 1981-1988

Ensame Nacionalista Astur

Official party flag
by Jaume Ollé

[Asturian Nationalist Assembly (Asturias, Spain), variant]
by António Martins and Jordi Pérez

Similar to the device in the [Conceyu Xoven] leonese nationalist flag.

Jaume Ollé, 20 June 1999

Ensame Nacionalista Astur used the Asturian flag with Covadonga [or Victory] cross without Alpha and Omega and with red star in canton (as the image [of Andecha Astur] reported by Dov Gutterman), but only in political meetings because the official flag of the party was white with black emblem in center.

Asturian Communist Movement

Movimiento Comunista Asturiano

[Asturian Communist Movement (Asturias, Spain), star centered]    [Asturian Communist Movement (Asturias, Spain), star in canton]
both by António Martins

The light blue flag with red star was used by several groups in the transition period [1975-mid 1980's]. Some of them used it with the star in canton and others with the star in the centre. Always without cross. I have information about the flag used by the Asturian Communist Movement (c. 1975-1982) that was light blue with large red star in center (1/2 of the flag). When used in canton, the star was a bit small.

Jaume Ollé, 29 June 1999

Lacking better information, I GIFfed the latter in a 2:3 B- background with the star's diameter equal of 5/12ths of the flag's height centered on a imaginary square canton with side equal to half of the flag's height.

Asturian Nationalist Joint Assembly

Xunta Nacionalista Asturiana

[Asturian Nationalist Joint Assembly (Asturias, Spain)]
by Jaume Ollé
