Parties in the Parliament

Moderata Samlingspartiet (Moderate Party)

[Moderaterna flag] by Marcus Wendel, 5 September 1999

Moderaterna (Moderate Party) is the Swedish conservative party.
Marcus Wendel, 5 September 1999

The logotype of Moderata Samlingspartiet, a designed version of the initial letter of the party name, was appropved by the executive board of the party in 1969. This was soon after the party changed name from Högerpartiet (The Right Party). The production designer Carl Göran Craaford made the initial design work.
When presented, the symbol was blue. In the spring of 1969 the colour was changed to wine-red, which it was throughout the election campaign 1970. The reason of the change was that red was considered as a better color to attract attention. While blue traditionally has been the colour of the party and red often associated to left-wing parties, the colour changed back to blue.
During the eighties the tone of the blue colour was changed a couple of times. In 1998 the symbol was added with a coloured corona of yellow and red. The purpose is to let the party symbol say something more to take a step forward but still keep the values of our classical brand.
Niklas Claesson (Moderaterna), 16 Sep 1999

Moderaterna also uses a version with "Moderaterna" written in black below the logo.
