Civic Circles

After the last election (2002) when the postcommunist MSZP won many people have found small political circles. Some of them are liberalist, some of the have united to the Fidesz, some of them radicalist or environmentalist or conservationist or saving the civil rights.. For example in my town there is two civic circle: Civic Circle of the Family Doctors in Pápa and the Civic Circle of Pápa.
Some of the circles  have united with another circles - some made the larger union of the circles - for example the "Tiszántúli Polgári Körök Szövetsége". The Tiszántúli Polgári Körök Szövetsége" is the union of the cicvic circles in the Tiszántúl Region. Here is its flag.
Tiszántúl is the one of the three largest region of Hungary: Dunántúl (left from the Danube), Duna-Tisza-köze (between the rivers) and the Tiszántúl (right from the Tisza river).
