Germany’s largest public party is reshaping itself. For a more modern look, use a turquoise background in the logo. The letters “CDU” are now black and not red; On its left side there are three stripes of black, red and gold. Germany circle disappears. The decisive factor was probably this: the “social democratic reds” must go. CDU general secretary Carsten Lindemann said: “The CDU is going dark again. Black color is now mandatory for all.”
In May 2017, ÖVP introduced turquoise as the party’s new political color and has retained it to date. The question arises: are the conservatives in Germany now attempting a similar restructuring of the ÖVP under Sebastian Kurz?
