Description of the Flag

The flag is horizontally divided in light blue over white, with a coat-of-arms-like emblem centered thereon above the lettering "Partido Povo Timor" — the party’s name without the smaller words (thus reading "Party People Timor") in yellow capitals edged black. The emblem, read as a coat of arms, is: party per fess argent and argent (?!), a roundel or (windmill stone? punctured coin?) and a pair of crossed daggers proper, ineschutheon “in heart” with Portugal modern. Crest: kaibauk crown, red scroll like wreath and mantling. For supporters, two purple roosters, motto "Timor-Dili" on a golden scroll.

Presentation of P.P.T.

P.P.T. got 7322 votes in the 2001.08.30 elections (2,01%), recieving 2 of 88 seats in the parlament, where it is one of the small parties. The symbol and flag of this party are quite similar to a previously existing entity M.N.L.I.T.D.

Image with unknown colors in gray, taken from Vlaggen 33 (1985) [vlg]: 482-483. "Timor-Dili" seems to be a 1975 aborted attempt to create an alternative to "Portuguese Timor", following the example of Guinea-Bissau (vs. Guinea-Konakry — here would be vs. Timor-Kupang). As we know, the form "East Timor" catched on instead.
