An important note about Indonesian political flags: they usually have their polling number above the emblem on the flag. But since the number might change every five years (this number is based on the admission order to the General Election Commission), the numbers have been excluded from the illustrations here.

Democratic Party of Struggle of Indonesia (PDI-Perjuangan)

[People's Democratic Party of Indonesia by Sammy Kanadi

A nationalist party; in the last election held in Indonesia (mid-1999), the Indonesian Democratic Party (Partai Demokrasi Indonesia) was the winner, 153 seats. Its leader, H. E. Megawati Soekarnoputri, is the president of the republic. Here is one of her most generally seen campaign/political flags. It is still in use now and will likely be used again in the 2004 election.

PDI, Partai Demokrasi Indonesia (Democratic Party of Indonesia)

Flag not known. 3 seats in 1999 election.

Partai Golkar (Golkar Party)

120 seats in 1999 elections.
GOLKAR (Habibie's and Suharto's party) uses a white pentagon on an yellow background. A white scroll covers partially the bottom of the pentagon and carries the inscription "GOLONGAN KARYA". Inside the pentagon is a banyan tree (green leaves, brown trunk), surrounded by a "plant crown". The plants on the left are golden rice and on the right green by cotton. These are elements from the national emblem.

Former flag of Partai Persatuan Pembangunan (Party of United Development), now flag of Partai Persatuan

[Partai Persatuan Pembangunan] by Sammy Kanadi

A Muslim party; 58 seats in 1999.  The flag shown here is the pre-1999 flag of the party.  This flag is now used by 
another new party, PP or Partai Persatuan.

The current flag of the PPP is pale green, charged with the image of the Ka'bah, holy site of the Moslem.  It was adopted in 1999.

A variant of this flag is predominantly black, with a rather squarish mosque in perspective, receding to the hoist, on a green field. The building has orange features and below the initials PPP are shown in black.

Partai Amanat Nasional (National Mandate Party)

35 seats in 1999. Rais' party - a white sun on a dark blue field with the blue initials on white below. I don't know if it means anything, but the sun has 32 rays. I think I've seen this symbol on a blue bedsheet in TV images. Without the party's initials.
Jorge Candeias, 8 June 1999

PKB, Partai Kebangkitan Bangsa (Party of the National Awakening)

51 seats in 1999 election.
A Muslim party.  The flag of the PKB is a white or green (two color officially used) flag charged with the symbol of PKB, a globe showing Indonesian map and an Arabic inscription on it, surrounded by a circle of stars. This is the party of the former Indonesian president, Abdurrahman Wahid.

A variant of this flag shows the party symbol on a green field with the party name below in white. The symbol is a map of Indonesia on a schematic planet map (i.e. - a few parallels and meridians on a circle) in white, surrounded by 9 golden stars, the one at 0:00 h twice as large as the others. The symbol also brings the party's initials in black outside the green field.
