The political party Vertiente Artiguista (Artiguist Source) is a member of the coalition Encuentro Progresista-Frente Amplio-Nueva Mayoría that won the presidential election of October 2004.

This party was founded in 1989. It takes its name to pay homage to the "Artiguismo" (Artiguism), the ideas of the Uruguayan national hero, José Gervasio Artigas. Vertiente Artiguista claims back these Artiguist ideas (according to Vertiente Artiguista website these Artiguist ideas are: "anti colonialialist, liberator, pro-Latin American integration, liberal, republican, and democratic"). The party also has social-democrat, center-left ideas.

The most important leader of this party is Mariano Arana, the present day Mayor of the City of Montevideo.

Vertiente Artiguista flags are yellow with a big "V" made in the colors of the Otorgués flag used by the Frente Amplio. This drawing also looks like a "checked" symbol, sometimes used in political ballots in the moment to vote. The number 77 refers to the number of the ballot list used by Vertiente Artiguista. The flag has a text that show the way that members of the group call it in a kind of familiar way: "La Vertiente" (The Source). Finally the name of the party and of the Frente Amplio appear below.

During the celebrations after Tabaré Vazquez's victory on the presidential elections of 2004, some Vertiente Artiguista flags could be seen between tricolor Frente Amplio's flags.
