The flag is Serb tricolour with golden emblem consisting of
the party initials in cyrillic letters. The party is formed in
Serb held teritories of Croatia during the time of transitional
international government in 1995 by the parts of Serb Democratic
Party (SDS) willing to undergo changes, and continued to work in
Republic of Croatia after reintegration of the regions. The
emblem is based on SDS emblem with aditional letter S below.
Established: Zagreb, 6 October 1995. Members: 2004 (6.000).
Members in Croatian Parliament: 1995-1999 - 1 (0,78%), 2004 - 3
(1,97%). The party was after the peaceful reintegration of the
Serb held teritories in the Easter Slavonia, Baranja and Western
Srijem (UN Protected Areas East), as political represetative of
Serbs lead by Vojislav Stanimirovic. The SDSS site claims that
the party was formed in 1997 in a merger of SSS (Samostalna
srpska stranka) that was active in Zagreb since early 1990, with
several progersive options that were active in Eastern Slavonia.
According to my observance, the party initially used the emblems
of SDSS similar to what was used by a party in the Republuic of
Serb Krayina (adding an aditional S), but eventually the graphic
symbols of the party were modernized as are shown on <www.hidra.hr>.
The party Statutes describ the flag, but the description is
ambiguous for me to draw according to it (as far as I undestand
it): it is described as a blue flag in ratio 1:2 with the pary
emblem in the upper left corner and the inscription at the fly
along the fly, the name of the party in red letters in Latin and
blue letters below it in Cyrillic script (now how do you put blue
letters on blue? maybe white outline?). The party emblem is a
white rectangular panel bordered bleu and red containing the
party initials SDSS in Latin red and in Cyrillic blue letters,
red slightly overlapping the blue and an symbol consisting of two
stylized Cyrillic letters C, one red and the other blue, forming
the Latin letter S.
