About uruguayan traditional parties

The Colorado (red) Party was the traditional liberal and the Blanco (white) the traditional conservative party. Since the 30s, these identifications have gotten complex, and some parts of the Blancos are to the left of many parts of the Colorados.

They can be called centrist parties, Blancos and Colorados. Both parties made an alliance against the left wing Frente Amplio, so as to defeat their candidate. They won eventually.

Uruguayan traditional political parties are not monolithic organisations, in the sense that they might have several “lists” for each of the party’s factions — for instance, the Battlismo or the Sanguinettismo of the Colorado Party, or the Lacallismo of the National Party. Hence, the basic colours for these two party’s flags are red (for the Colorado party) and white (for the National (Blanco) party), with each list having a “flag” of their own with their mottos and their sub-mottos. There was no mention of party flags on each of the parties’ charters, but they had, of course, a note on their colours.
