Our Flag

Our flag is very similar to the Lesotho national flag as it flew from 1965 until 1986. The flag is rectangular and is 70% blue with three vertical strips white, red and green respectively each occupying 10% of the flag. The Constitution of the Party elaborates on the meaning and sybmolism of each colour.

The Basotho Democratic National Party supports the new National Flag adopted on 4 October 2006 as a symbol of national unity and reconcilliation. We are sincere in the hope that it will be the last new flag and that with time and our support it will become the flag our nation in heart and mind. Members of our Party who were members of the outgoing Parliament and Senate including Thabang Nyeoe, Jerry Letsie, Leseteli Malefane, Mooki Molapo, Thamsanqa Tyali, Malerotholi Sekhonyana and others supported its adoption.

Our flag is always to be flown at our rallies and pitsos and shall always be flown below the National Flag and raised and lowered before the Nationbal Flag.

Welcome to the Basotho Democratic National Party

On behalf of the leadership and all the members of the Basotho Democratic National Party (BDNP) 'Mokha oa Basotho oa Puso ea Sechaba ka Sechaba' I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our blog. We have put this together as a temporary measure while our website is under construction. In the coming days and weeks we will be posting our Constitution, the 2007 Election Manifesto and other documents relating to the progress, development and growth of our Party.

As much as these documents will allow us to explain ourselves and our policies positions our most important and fundemental characteristic is our commitment to the upliftment of the masses of Lesotho's people. The greatest proportion of our people are poor. Despite this and the numerous hardships that they daily endure they remain the backbone of our great nation and the custodians of its true potential. Under a govenment of the BDNP these same people who have so long been neglected will become the main and central focus of our economic, educational and social upliftment. Our democracy will truly become a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

We hope that as you read about us and what we stand for you will not only be moved to join us but to more importantly stand up and be counted under whatever party's flag, as a person who is committed to the betterment of Lesotho and all the Basotho people.
