"Margherita" ("Democrazia Ŕ libertà - La Margherita" = Democracy is Freedom - The White Ox-Eye www.margheritaonline.it) - The Margherita is a sub-coalition of the "L'Ulivo" coalition joining together parties claiming heritage of the old DC ("Democrazia Cristiana" = Christian Democracy). The more right-wing fission products of the DC belong to "Casa delle Libertà", sub-coalition "UDC" (see 1.4). The leader of "Margherita" is Francesco Rutelli. The parties of the Margherita coalition form a common parliamentary group in the Camera dei Deputati (77 deputies) and the Senato (37 senators); the UDEUR members, however, had left the common groups in June/July 2002. Recently (March 2002) the three remaining parties of the coalition (PPI, Democratici, Rinnovamento Italiano) decided to formalize Margherita as a party under the name "Democrazia Ŕ libertà - La Margherita", thus dissolving the formerly independent parties.

The current logo of "Margherita" is divided pale-blue over white over green, in the center a white ox-eye daisy; at the top the inscription "DEMOCRAZIA ╚ LIBERT└" (Democracy is freedom), at the bottom the inscription "LA MARGHERITA". Logo at www.margheritaonline.it. The former logo of "Margherita" was divided pale-blue over white over green, in the center a white ox-eye; in the upper right corner the logos of the four parties belonging to the coalition, in the upper left corner the inscription "Democrazia Ŕ libertà" (Democracy is freedom), at the bottom the inscription "con Rutelli" (with Rutelli). The flag is simply divided pale-blue over white over green, in the center a white ox-eye.
