FSLN - Frente Sandinista de Liberacio'n Nacional

1) [Flag of Sandinistas]

2) [Flag of Sandinistas]
by Randy Young, 21 January 1999

In Nicaragua, the Sandinist National Liberation Front used a horizontally divided red-black flag. The flag was widely used in mass demonstrations during the years of Sandinist power (I don't have the exact dates). The party is named after Augusto Sandino, a pioneer in the fight against the Somoza family, who ruled a dictature in Nicaragua over several decades. The Sandinist front has more or less collapsed in several rival factions after he left the power and I am not sure the flag is still used by one of these factions.

The Sandinista flag bears the letters FSLN in white in the centre. Many variations are known, and some were reported by the Flag Bulletin. Red and black are used as the Sandinista colors.
Jaume Olle', 24 December 1998

The acronym stands for "Frente Sandinista de Liberacio'n Nacional".

PLC - Partido Liberal Constitucionalista (Constitutional Liberal Party, conservative)  is the leading party in NI.
Two versions of its flag.:
Plain red as in <>.
Plain red with initials as in <>.
Dov Gutterman, 26 Febuary 2002

Two flags are shown for the Partido Liberal Constitucionalista. According to the official status of the party, the plain red flag should be the only official flag of the party. Here is my translation of the article of the status concerning the flag at <>:
"Article 8 - Emblems
A. The flag: the main emblem of the party is made of a red rectangle with proportion 3:5. It should be hoisted permanently on the Party buildings, side by side with the national flag, as well as during actions and official ceremonies of the Party, according to the circumstances, places and opportunities to hoist it. The red colour identifies the PLC to its Flag, which should not bear letters, symbols and distinctive elements on its field or edges."

A few more elements on the Party: The Movimiento Liberal Constitucionalista, founded in 1968, became officially the Partido Liberal Constitucionalista in 1983 by Decree 1312. The amended status was approved during the ordinary session of the great national convention of the Party, hold on 11 July 2002 in Hotel Granada, Ciudad de Granada.
