Italian Socialist Democratic Party/Partito Socialista Democratico Italiano (PSDI) - flag.
Francisco Manuel Garcia, 27 May 2005

The PSDI (Partito Socialista Democratico Italiano = Italian Democratic Socialist Party) was founded as a secession from the Italian Socialist Party (PSI) in 1947,  reunited with the PSI 1966-1969, was refounded in 1969, and merged with the major faction of the former PSI to form the SDI (Socialisti Democratici Italiani) in 1998. With the congress of 2004 the party was refounded again by a part of the former membership. See During much of the time of the existence, the PSDI was one of the minor coalition partners of the DC in Italian governments.
The symbol of the party had been for quite some time (since the 1950ies??) the stylized sun rising from the water, with rays emanating, and inscriptions of the party abbreviation "PSDI" and "Socialdemocrazia". The revived party adopted this symbol and also uses flags based on this symbol. The photo album of the party at (no longer available) showed a lot of photos with the party flag.
