The symbol of this party is a quatrefoil, and the flag design was taken from the party’s website (I never saw this flag “in the cloth”). Two shades of green (dark quatrefoil on lighter background) and white lettering "MPT / Movimento Partido da Terra".

Presentation of M.P.T.

Movimento Partido da Terra (Earth Party Movement) was created some ten years ago, embodying a strong trend in the portuguese society of people envolved in environment politics by clearly not sympathizing with the existing Green Party. Some of these people come from the Monarchic Party (in its previous environmentalist / ruralist reencarnation) and others from all over the political spectrum.

The Movimento o Partido da Terra (MPT) is an environmentalist party in Portugal. Its name may be translated as "Movement of the Earth Party", but I’m not quite sure, since the Portuguese word "terra" has several meanings: Earth, world, globe, land, soil, ground, shore, coast, country, territory, birthplace, estate. As an environmentalist party perhaps the word means really all of this.
