image by Zoltan Horvath, 3 March 2014

The Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform of Vitali Klitschko (Ukrainian:Український демократичний альянс за реформи Віталія Кличка; the acronym UDAR/УДАР translates to "strike" or "punch") is a political party in Ukraine headed by retired Ukrainian professional heavyweight boxer and the WBC world heavyweight champion emeritus Vitali Klitschko. The party has an anti-corruption and pro-European platform.

Legally it is the successor of Political Party "European Capital" (Ukrainian: Політична партія „Європейська столиця“) which was registered in March 2005. In its current form the party was founded on April 24, 2010, on the basis of the Vitali Klitschko Bloc(Ukrainian: Блок Віталія Кличка), a local political alliance in Kiev (the capital of Ukraine).

The party won 40 seats in the Ukrainian parliament in the 2012 Ukrainian parliamentary election.

The party's flag (source: is a red horizontal flag with the party's logo ( in inverted colors (that is, letters in white and background in red).

Here's another picture of the party's flag (fourth flag from left to right):

Ukrainian National Assembly (UNA)

image by Victor Lomantsov, 19 August 2000

I found this photo of a right-wing group in Ukraine at which states: "Members of the ultra right-wing nationalist party, the Ukrainian National Assembly (UNA), carry a coffin, with the body of their leader Anatoly Lupynos, and their nationalist flags during a funeral procession in Kiev, Ukraine, on Tuesday, February 8, 2000. Lupynos, one of the founders of Ukraine's Popular Movement (Narodny Ruch) , who served 27 years in Soviet-era prisons, died on Saturday, Feb. 5. He was 62. The activists of UNA took part in the Russian-Chechen war against Russia and took part in other armed conflicts, acting against the Russians. (AP Photo/Viktor Pobedinsky)"

Jaume Olle, 20 Febuary 2000

Ukrainian National Assembly (UNA) – The party was founded in 1990. The party flag is red with black cross (symbol of he Cossacks) and sign of "infinity". The sign is torn. It must symbolize that the process of building of ukrainian state was interrupted in the past.

Ukrainian National Labor Party

image by Tomislav Todorovic, 16 June 2019

Ukrainian National Labor Party (Ukrayins'ka natsional-trudova partiya, UNTP; Українська націонал-трудова партія, УНТП) was a minor ultra-rightist party. Founded in 2005, it was never registered. Having failed to achieve a greater influence, it ceased to exist in 2009; its members, mostly consisting of skinheads and football hooligans, have dispersed to other similar groups. [1]

The party flag in use from 2007 to 2009 [1, 2] was charged with black monogram NT, fimbriated white, upon square red field. Letter N (early medieval form of Cyrillic letter Н) stood for word "nation" (natsiya, нація) while the letter T, shaped like a hammer, stood for the word "labor" (trud, труд) [2]. The flag colors were said to have been traditional colors of Ukrainian people; in addition, red color symbolized struggle for social justice, while white stood for the "purity of national idea" [2]. The unspoken meaning of the color set was the Nazi symbolism, because the party often described itself as National Socialist [1]. The emblem was inspired by that of the Social-National Party of Ukraine.

The flag was seen in Kyiv during the demonstrations on 2007-04-16 [1, 3], on 2007-06-30 [1, 4], as well as on several other rallies which can no longer be dated due to a bug at the surviving party website which displays incorrect dates (the dating of those which can be, was done after the Wikipedia info about the UNTP activities) [5, 6].

The original party flag, used until 2007 [1, 2], was a red-black horizontal bicolor, charged with a large white disk bearing crossed sword and hammer in black. This emblem, said to symbolize struggle and labor [2], was originally used by in Germany by Otto Strasser and his followers – the so-called "Nazi left wing" and has gained much popularity among the neo-Nazis worldwide since the 1990s. General design is a derivation of the so-called "Patriotic Flag" which is very popular among Ukrainian ultra-rightist groups, either in its basic form or modified to produce their own flags. This particular flag was seen in Kyiv on 2005-11-07 [1, 7], on 2006-05-01 [1, 8], on 2006-05-21 [1, 9] and on 2006-10-14 [1, 10].

Ukrainian People Democratic Party

The Ukrainian People Democratic Party seems to use a horizontally divided blue-yellow-green flag. The party website shows the logo of the party with these three colours and something looking like a flag (on the rigth middle of the page, 7 cm below (PDP). see:
I don't know anything about this party. The top two-thirds of the flag are evidently related to the Ukrainian colours. I assume it is anti-Communist or at least not Communist since red colour is not used in the flag.
Ivan Sache, 16 November 2001

The Political Handbook of The World, 1997 has: "Popular-Democratic Party of Ukraine (Narodno-Demokratychna Partiya
Ukrainy – NDPU). The NDPU was registered in June 1996 as the result of a merger of centrist political forces, including the Party for Democratic Revival of Ukraine (partiya Demokratychna Vidrodzhennia Ukrainy – PDVU) and the Labor Congress of Ukraine (Trudova Kogres Ukrainy – TKU). The PDVU had earlier formed the core of the New Ukraine (NU) center-left alliance and had won four seats in the 1994 ballotting. In 1998 the NDPU got 28 seats. Leader: Anatoliy Matviyenko".
Jarig Bakker, 16 November 2001

Jaume informed me off-list that the correct proportions of the PNP flag could be 1:2. From the "image" of the flag on the party website, it is "between" 2:3 and 1:2. I initially made it 2:3 according to the Ukrainian natonal flag.
Ivan Sache, 17 November 2001

The Ukrainian inscription of PDVU by Jarig is not correct. The name in Ukrainian looks like Democratic Party of Revival (correct name is Party of Democratic Revival). Correct Ukrainian name is – Partiya Demokratychnogo Vidrodzhennya Ukrainy. The Ukrainian name of TKU is not correct too. It must be Trudovyi Kongres Ukrainy.
Regulation on symbols of the People's Democratic Party was adopted on 17, June, 2000 by Executive Committee of the party.

Ukrainian Republican Party

Gaceta de Banderas 79 show a dark blue flag bearing a white disk with a black bird, that is reported by Grechilo, being the flag of the Republican Party. I have a photo of a demostration where is a blue flag (but light blue) bearing a yellow disk with a dark device (that is not visible). Anyone know if this can be same flag (in a variant version) or other different party flag?

Ukrainian Socialist Party

image by Jorge Candeias, 16 December 2004

I saw a red flag with a communist-style symbol in the canton: the outline of half a book, a hammer and a sickle-shaped spike. After a long search, I finally found an evolution of the same symbol at and it turns out to belong to a Ukrainian party, post-communist, called (in russian) "Sotsialistitcheskaya Partiya Ukraine", or Ukrainian Socialist Party.
Jorge Candeias, 16 December 2004

It is an actual flag of SPU (Sotsialistychna partiya Ukrayiny). This party was founded in 1991. Leader: Oleksandr Moroz.

The first line says "Politichna Partiya" (Political Party); the second says "Trudova Ukraina" (Working Ukraine).
Joe McMillan, 5 Febuary 2002

The party was instituted on March, 19, 2000. According to WEB-site of the party: Flag of the party is blue with orange horizontal stripe. Motto 2:3. Blue inscription "POLITICAL PARTY" (Helios Ext. Bold font) is placed on the orange stripe.White inscription "WORKING UKRAINE" (Futuris Black font) is placed at the bottom of the field.
Blue stripe symbolizes validity, faith, love to majestic, cleanliness, transformation. Blue – colour of devoted service to true and aspiration to self-expression. Orange – colour of harvest, fruits of ground, evolved under beams of the sun, colour of action, enthusiasm and freedom. White – this colour is a base of all paints, it symbolizes tolerance.
Victor Lomantsov, 6 Febuary 2002

Working Ukraine (Vyborchyy Blok "Trudova Ukraina"). It was formed by the Civil Congress of Ukraine (Hromadyanskyy Konhres Ukrainy) and Ukrainian Justice Party (Ukrainska Partiya Spravedlyvosti). The Civil Congress, based in Donetsk, was created in 1992 by representatives of the east and south to defend the Russian language and promote closer integration with Russia. (see Note 12) The bloc put up a slate of 117, including Kiev City Mayor Oleksandr Omelchenko, Minister of Foreign Economic Ties Serhiy Osyka, and first assistant to the premier Andriy Derkach. The anti-Kuchma paper Silski Visti (29 January) asserted that Working Ukraine is filled with people "who worked or are working in the president's Administration or cabinet" and is a "'fifth column' in the veterans' movement". The list is headed by veterans (No. 1 and No. 3) and includes a total of 25 members of veterans' organizations.

Project for Ukraine

image by Eugene Ipavec, 22 August 2005

Mr. Denis Sacharnych reported at the Russian E-mail Forum RussoVex about news item from On August, 10, 2005 there was a picket of the Euroasian Youth Union (EYU) near the Ukrainian embassy in Moscow, asking for the resignation of the president of Ukraine, Mr. Victor Yushchenko, as well that Ukraine will join USA as its 52nd state. A new blue-yellow star-spangled flag for Ukraine was shown at
Mikhail Revnivtsev, 11 August 2005

The political point is well made, and it's interesting to reflect for how many countries this visual metaphor would work – Ukraine's unique yellow and blue are immediately obvious in the new context. But it's a pity that, having gone to the trouble of making the new flag, they didn't pay more attention to the details. Unless there's a stripe folded under at the bottom, there are only twelve stripes, and – coming close to defeating the object of the exercise, it seems to me – there are only 35 stars.
André Coutanche, 11 August 2005

There are 7 columns of 5 stars and 12 stripes. If Ukraine is no. 52, why are there 35 stars? And for that matter, the 52nd state?
Was something annexed while I wasn't looking?
Eugene Ipavec, 11 and 22 August 2005

12 strripes would make sense, since it's a parody of the Ukrainian flag, so it's blue-yellow repeated. Looking at the picture, it doesn't quite look right: the stars don't seem uniform (as to be expected from a one-off protest flag), for example the middle star on the second row seems to be upside down, the stars closest to the fly on the third and fourth row are definitely rotated in opposition to each other, and the first star on the bottom row again looks to be upside down. The 35 stars are indeed a mystery, as the US flag has 50, and Ukraine has half that many subdivisions.
David Kendall, 23 August 2005

I noticed some of that, actually, but assumed that the protesters had just been sloppy, instead of there being intent behind the changes. I suppose there's a broader point here.
Eugene Ipavec, 24 August 2005

Independentists Movements (?)

It was asked about an Ukrainian orange-white-blue flag as follows:
"I'm french and I'm looking for a flag. A friend saw a flag on a licence car plate from ukraine, from the top: orange (or yellow may be) – white – blue".
In my city I can see frequently Ukrainian cars and they bear the national flag and the quoted flag is unknown. But if it was in a shape of an oval, perhaps it is a independentist flag (Ruthenian or Lemko or other?).
