The proper flag for the party is very similar to the Previous Flag, only that it has a light blue background, and is more vertical than horizontal.
Mark Bajer, 5 August 2002

I checked the party site at <> and there is availbe Statute of the party that describes the flag as light blue with the party emblem in the middle and acronym inscriobed below. As a rule the flag is adorned with silver or golden fringe on three sides. There is no indication about weather this is a horizontal or vertical flag, and - even if I previously though there might be horizonatl version too - I have never seen it - only the vertical version is used. Even when it is attached to the flag staff in a way one would expect to have rotated design.
Regarding the gray field - I believe that the flag as used while president Tudjman was alive was silver - field was made usually of shiny metalic textile - and gray when printed, though when exactly the change to light blue was made, I am not sure, probably before 1999. The party Statute mentioned above has it light blue, though it is wording of the Statute adopted in year
2000. Not that I think that it was changed in this regard...

Youth Organization of the Party

by Željko Heimer, 5 August 2002

The youth organization of the party is "Mladež Hrvatske demokratske zajednice". They use a flag composed of gray (silver) and white squares atristically made so as if made by diagonal filling. In the middle of the flag the gray parts are changed into red and blue, thogether with written word "mladež!" (youth) forming the emblem of the youth organization.
