Flag of GU - Image by Tomislav Todorović, 26 August 2012
Gauche Unitaire (Unitarian Left) was founded on 14 MArch 2009 by former
members of the Nouveau Parti Anticapitaliste (NPA - New Anticapitalist Party (which had been founded previous month) who disagreed with its refusal to join the Front de Gauche (Left Front), the coalition of leftist parties led by the Parti Communiste Français and the Parti de Gauche, which the new party joined after its founding.
GU eventually merged into the PCF on 8 September 2015 (joint press release).

The party flag (photo, Paris, 15 January 2012; photo, Paris, 19 March 2012; photo, Lyon, 14 April 2012) is red, charged with the party logo in white.
The logo consists of three five-pointed stars with curved rays, vaguely resembling three human figures, each star in a different size, and the party name inscribed in two rows beneath them.
