pp. 340-341 ("Symbols in politics"). Smith says that these are real
flags and not only party emblems, which may differ in colours when
used as emblem or in a flag.

Partido Revolucionario Dominicano (PRD) uses two flags. Green on white bicolor (with slogans) and logo on white:
Article 4.- The Reformist Social Cristian Party bears an emblem or symbol a circle formed by a lauril wreath on its left and a palm branch on its right, whose lowere extremes intertwine without their upper extremes touching each other. Around those branches of lauril and palm, two ribbons with the following inscriptions: the upper ribbon, PARTIDO REFORMISTA SOCIAL CRISTIANO; in the lower ribbon, NI INJUSTICIAS NI PRIVILEGIOS ["neither injustices nor privileges"]. Within the circle left by the already described ribbons and branches, there will be an allegory reresenting a dawn on our fields, the sun rising behind the mountains. In front of this allegory, a rooster [red] posing in singing posture, and beneath the rooster, a green machete.
Article 5.- The motto of the Reformist Social Cristian Party is: NEITHER INJUSTICES NOR PRIVILEGES.
Article 6.- The Reformist Social Cristian Party is identified by the vermillion red (colorado).
Article 7.- The flag of the Reformist Social Cristian Party is rectangular shaped, six feet long by four feet wide [2:3], vermillion red coloured, and with the emblem described in article 4 of the current etatutes, embroidered or printed at the centre.
Paragraph: Whenever considered convenient, the size of the flag can be modified, bearing always the proper proportions [2:3] and, in case of need, may not bear the emblem.
Aveledo Coll, 18 Aug 2000, quoting from the party statutes
This flag, which I saw in photographs of the recent presidential race in the
Dominican Republic, had the same proportions as a standerad PRSC flag, in
vermillion red, and, instead of the emblem of the Reformist Social Cristian
Party, the bore an effigy of former president and candidate Joaquin
Balaguer, and some mottos. The only one I saw distincly (somo might have had
different mottos, some had only Dr. Balaguer’s effigy) read: "ˇADELANTE
REFORMISTAS!/ LA PATRIA SOMOS TODOS/ BALAGUER PRESIDENTE 2000" ("go
forward, reformists!/ we all are the Motherland / Balaguer for president
This flags was definitely mass used and, given the prominence of Dr Balaguer
over his party, you might call take it as official.

The flag of the Partido Revolucionario Social Cristiano
is green (Slogan: «ˇVota verde!», «Vote green!»), on which a
white lying lozenge with a lying green machete, of which the point
is directed at the fly; on the lemmet: PRSC in white. The small
flag of the party-supporters were wholly green!
