HNS, Croatian Popular Party (Hrvatska narodna stranka) - The
party flag is the Croatian tricolour, with the white stripe
artistically shown. Similar flag was 1990 proposal for the
Croatian flag by Boris Ljubicic. The
party was formed by centrist and leftist oriented members who
seceeded from Tudjman's HDZ mainly
disagreeing with Tudman's politics towards B&H. Current
Coratian president Mesic was one of the foundes (and he left the
party when elected president).
