This is Neo-Nazi party, propagating xenophobia and racism.
This party is prohibited in Lithuania and acts illegally.

note: probably wrong colours

I saw a photo of this flag in newspaper in 1991 (Vilnius,
1991, demonstrations agains Soviets). Anybody knows what is it?
The flag was white-red-white triband with the heart in the centre. The heart was surmounted with a cross and charged with lithuanian "columns".

White-red white stood for whole Grand Duchy of Lithuania
(present-day Lithuania, Byelarus, Ukraine; after 1569 Ukraine
ceded to Poland).
If I were to guess, it looks like Lithuanian GDL - nationalist Catholics flag.

I am unsure of what the colors mean. However, Mr.
Kachniarz's explanation of the colors makes sense. The
charge in the middle of the flag is the symbol of the Sajudis
movement of the late 1980's-early 1990's. It was an
independence movement, largely behind most anti-Soviet
demonstrations, such as the "singing revolution".

All these comments are incorrect. The sign - the heart
surmounted with a cross and charged with Columns of the Gediminas
family - is an emblem of the Union of Lithuanian Political
Prisoners and Deportees (Lietuvos politiniu kaliniu ir tremtiniu
sajunga - www.lpkts.lt). I am
not sure but middle red band should be replaced with Lithuanian
tricolor, i.e. yellow-green-red. Anyway I asure you that
displayed tricolor (white-red-white) is incorrect. Because it is
national colors of white Russians and we, Lithuanians, do not use
