Description of the flag

Janata Dal (United), with 7 members of the Lok Sabha, is an ally of the BJP. The web page on the union between it and the Samata party claims the unified party would retain the JD(U)'s symbol of arrow and the green-and-white flag of the Samata. He said both parties would contest the coming Assembly elections as the JD(U). I have been unable to find any image.

At http://www.tribuneindia.com/2005/20050118/elec3.jpg one finds a version of the Janata Dal (United) flag, a horizontally divided green-white green flag with the party symbol of the arrow and some writing above it on the white field. Presumably the writing is the party name, but so blurred in the photo I am not completely certain what alphabet, but would hazard a guess as Latin as it seems to be ending in a letter U shape.

Janata Dal (United), is a political party in India. It is an important and strong ally of the National Democratic Alliance.

Variant flag with black or red arrows

JD(U) currently heads the government of Bihar. The photo (2005) communicated by Knut Berg shows the party flag as horizontally divided green-white-green with a red arrow pointing to the hoist placed in the white stripe. The red writing place above the arrow does not seem to me to be in Latin script but rather in Hindi (or another local script). Wikipedia shows the party flag as horizontally divided dark green-white-dark green with a black arrow pointing to the hoist placed in the white stripe. The black arrow was the party symbol in the 2001 State elections (http://archive.eci.gov.in/SE2001/parties/national/jd(u).htm). It was still registered in 2004 (http://www.indiaonestop.com/Election2004/politicalparties.html).
