Presentation of the PH

The Partido Humanista (PH - Humanist Party) is the Spanish branch of the Humanist Movement.
Among the founders of Izquierda Unida (IU), the Partido Humanista was expelled a few months later from the coalition when its "picturesque" features were unveiled.

The Humanist Movement succeeded a sect called La Comunidad (The Community), founded in 1977 by the Argentine visionary Silo (born Mario Rodriguez Cobo; 1938-2010) from the groupies he had been gathering since 1960 in Punta de Vaca, close to the Chilean border. Later on, he studied in Naples at the Tathagata esoteric school, where he was initiated to magic rituals and renamed to Silo. He founded, together with the Twelve Apostles, the Cronos occultist group in a remote place of the Andean forest; the group was eventually suppressed by the police and Silo was jailed for 11 days. Accordingly, his groupies presented him as a martyr and claimed he was a messianic alien.
Emigrated to Chile under the name of Movimiento de la Religión Interior (Movement of Inner Religion), the sect collaborated with the opponents to Allende's regime, which did not prevent it to be suppressed once again by Augusto Pinochet.
Silo eventually restructured the sect in Corfu, ordering his groupies to "humanize the world". Silo's doctrin is an odd mixture of occultism, belief to aliens, religious anarchism and economical self-management.

Flag of PH

The flag of the PH (photo, photo, photo, photo) is orange with the Möbius strip, white outlined in black, and the party's name beneath, in black italicized letters. This is the same as the flag of the Chilean party of the same name.
The symbol of the Partido Humanista is prescribed in Article 4 of the party's Statutes (text) as "the orange flag with the Möbius strip".
