Description of the flag

The Lok Satta Party was founded on 2006-10-02 by the Lok Satta movement for political reforms[1]. Its flag, whose design is also used as the party logo, is described in the party Constitution[2], which was adopted on the founding day:

Article IV. Flag and Logo

  1. The Party flag shall also serve as the Party logo.
  2. The flag shall be in the form of a rectangle of dark blue colour and bearing a pure white circle, centered in which shall be a five-pointed star of the same colour as the rectangle. The dimensions, relative spatial arrangement and colors of the flag shall be as prescribed.
  3. The dark blue colour symbolizes the vastness, depth and inclusive nature of the ocean in which all streams finally merge.
  4. The five-pointed blue star signifies that the Party sets its course by the twinkle of the distant star, and not by the lights of passing ships. The five corners of the star stand for the five pillars of a true democracy: (i) liberty (ii) self-governance (iii) citizen empowerment (iv) rule of law and (v) self-correcting institutions.
  5. The white colour of the circle stands for purity. The colour symbolizes unity of purpose and action amidst the diversity in religion, region, caste, language and beliefs.
The Rules and Regulations[2], which specify the provisions of the Constitution in detail and were adopted together with it, contain precise instructions for the flag making:
  1. Dimensions and Colours of Party Flag (Article IV)
    1. The ratio between the length (longer side) and the breadth (shorter side) of the Rectangle in the Lok Satta Party Flag and Logo shall be 3:2 irrespective of the overall dimensions. The rectangle shall be of dark blue colour as prescribed.
    2. The white circle shall overlay the dark blue rectangle and shall have a diameter of 76% of the breadth (shorter side) of the rectangle.
    3. The five-pointed blue star shall be symmetric all (a)round and shall lie entirely within the white Circle. When measured from the center, the corners of the star shall lie at 87% of the half-diameter of the circle.

      Relative Spatial Arrangement:
    4. The white circle is centered both vertically and horizontally, inside the Rectangle.
    5. The five-pointed, blue star is centered, both vertically and horizontally, inside the Rectangle.

    6. The dark blue colour of the Rectangle and the five-pointed star is the result of mixing of standard colours of cyan and magenta, in the ratio of 89% and 70%, respectively.
    7. The pure white colour of the circle is obtained by combining, in equal measure, all colours of the spectrum.
