The flag of the Democratic Left Party (DSP) is blue with a white dove representing peace, and DSP letters in red. The flag was adopted in November 1985. The image above was redrawn based on an image found on the party website.
Blue is traditionally associated with Ecevit's followers and together with white belongs to the Trade Union Confederation Türkë. Both colours symbolize the union of DSP with trade unionist and Socialist movement.
