Flag of the PSOE

The party's logo (official image), designed in 2003, is made of two twin red squares, the left one with the party's initials in white, the right one with a white fist and rose.
The party's flag, used either horizontally or vertically, is white with the logo. Occasionally, only the red square with white the party's initials is used on a white field (for instance, in León, 27 February 2004).

Flag of the PSOE, 1976-2003 - Image by Santiago Dotor & Ivan Sache, 6 June 2016

The legendary logo of the PSOE was designed in 1976, following the legalization of political parties in Spain, to replace the logo used since 1936 by the party in exile (image). José María Cruz Novillo (website) used the logo of the French Parti Socialiste as a model.
The party's flag was white with the logo.

In 1994, Rafael Celda y Asociados (website) designed a new logo, made of a red stylized rose on a white background (image). The legendary logo, however, was soon recovered, and kept in use until 2003.
