In July 2005, the Breton Party sent an open letter concerning the future licence plates to the President of Administration at the Brittany Regional Council, as well as to the five presidents of the Breton General Councils. In its letter the Breton Party advocated the use of what is considered the most uniting symbol of Brittany, i.e. the Breton flag; the « Gwenn ha Du » However, the Regional Council seem eager to promote the logo of this local authority (a green ermine on a blue background), which should be argued against considering that this logo represents the Regional Council of “administrative” Brittany only and not the whole of Brittany.

This proposal went to the Economic and Social Council and should soon be debated by the Regional Councillors. The Breton Party requests that the logo submitted by the Regional Council be withdrawn and in its place et#8722; the Breton flag et#8722; be accepted instead. Gérard Olliéric, President of the Breton Party.

Cars licence plates: the new plan of action for 2008: an opportunity to assess Brittany’s image. - Whatever the field concerned et#8722; cultural, business, political et#8722; everyone recognises and is proud of the strong image that Brittany has built up over the last few decades together with the cultural unity that characterises it so well. This image has crossed the boarders of France and many times, since the beginning of your mandate, you have expressed a will to strengthen it both at the economic and political levels, especially when you are clearly setting out your wish for Brittany’s administrative reunion. Many territorial institutions use the “Gwenn ha Du”, which has become in everyone’s opinion et#8722; Bretons and turists alike et#8722; a strong symbol of our identity. For many Bretons living in the five administrative departments and maybe even more when taking into consideration those who come from “outside “, when they feel they belong to our community often express this by sticking, on the back of their cars, any stickers that symbolise Brittany. Cars are indeed recognised to be important for their users and represent a powerful communicative vehicle. While the government is about to set up a new plan of action that would harmonise the look of all licence plates that would also enable regions to personalise them, we would like to take advantage of this opportunity to suggest an official logo that would identify Brittany.

First and foremost this logo will have to be “meaningful” to all Bretons, especially to those who are more committed to this cultural and political change, but also to those who come from “outside”, including other European regions. As such, the “Gwenn ha Du” would probably unite all the Bretons from the five departments. The Breton Party places a lot of importance on this symbolic act, because it affects consciousness and aims to strengthen the concept of “belonging” to a strong and interdependent region among Bretons, while avoiding a “dispersion/dispersal” effect in each department, which could prove harmful to our image.

The Breton Party is a republican, reforming political party that aims at uniting men and women who are involved in the struggle for full recognition of the Breton people’s national identity. It offers a particular vision of social organisation, based on the primacy of the individual. It defines itself through the values of humanity, solidarity, democracy and freedom. It is a reforming party that is open to everyone who are engaged in progress, according to the principles of Social Democracy to Liberal Social Democracy, concepts widely recognised and spread across the EU.
