About the flag

A red arrow (La Falange) that crosses vertically two lines (that represent capitalism and communism symbolizing a new way between the 2 systems) on a white rhombus and blue background to complement the colors of the Chilean flag.
Uriel González Urquiza, 16 Jul 2006

Deep blue flag with a white lozenge centred inside, and within the lozenge, a red arrow or phalanx, upwards, crossing through two rectangles, also in red. These two rectangles are said to be the left and the right, which are surpassed by Christian Democracy. This flag also exists with the lozenge lying, but I’m not sure where the arrow points in that case.

A similar symbol is used by other Christian Democratic Parties.
