The Slovene Community (Comune Slovena, Slovenska skupnost, SSk) is a minor
Italian regionalist party founded in 1963. Representing the Slovene minority of
Slavia Veneta, in the rural areas of Udine province, it is Christian-democratic
The party logo is defined in its statute at http://www.slovenskaskupnost.org/Statut.aspx:
Article 2 (emblem)
The emblem of the SSk is a blue lime sprig in a circle with the words "Slovene Community," which are red in color, while the background is white.
The SSk uses its flag only very infrequently; it can be seen on pages 10 and 13 of the photo gallery at at http://www.slovenskaskupnost.org/Galerija.aspx. The flag has a white disc thinly bordered blue in the upper fly with the blue lime sprig from its logo, but no red circle or inscriptions. From this disc there radiate three rays in the colors of the Slovene national flag.

There is also an "inadvertent flag," being a vertical banner-oid printed on plastic cloth which seems to invite taping to a stick to use as a flag at outdoor events and whatnot, even though it is not designed for it. It carries the party seal and below it the motto "Za vse nas" ("For us all").
The photos on the party website also show several examples what I take to be gonfanons of area municipalities.
