Description of the Flag

The 2007 elections official leaflet [t9l07] and the ETAN site show this flag, absent at the parliament website.
António Martins, 11 September 2007

The flag is based on the 1999-2002 C.N.R.T. flag, with a dark blue hoist panel taking ~2/5ths of the ~3:5 flag and the remainder a horizontal triband of light blue, white and green. On the dark blue area a central circular device, yellow with wide orange rim, divided 2+2+1 by orange lines and containing on each of these five areas five things I cannot tell apart — black, black, green, red, and orange, and eight more things, red, on the border (better image needed!). This disc is surrounded by 23 five-pointed stars in a complex, vertically symmetrical arrangement. On the white stripe, the word "Undertim" in black serif capitals.

A flag vaguely akin to the (old) CNRT’s and Falintil’s can be seen Getty photo 73737569 (Copyright: Cândido Alves / AFP / Getty Images): it shows something like a medium blue square at the hoist with white stars surrounding a mainly yellow round emblem and at the fly three horizontal stripes, light blue over white over green with "UNDERTIM" in black serif capitals on the white area.

Sagrada Família had important roles in the ethnical clashes in 2006 in Timor-Leste. It is suspect of criminal actions like robbery, extortion and arson.
