Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Tory symbol was a stylised torch. However in the past few weeks Cameron has replaced it with a scribble of an oak tree. You can see the image of the new logo in the Wikipedia article


The Liberal Democrat symbol is called the bird of liberty and was once derided by Mrs Thatcher as a dead parrot. Obviously her speechwriter was a Monty Python fan.

The Labour Party used to have a red flag logo, but that was thought to be a bit left wing, so the red rose replaced it.

I suppose the parties provide some work for graphic designers.

The red rose is the symbol of most European Social Democrat parties, isn't it?

The flower used depends on geography. In some places, it's a red carnation.
