Asturian nationalism

"Asturina cola estrella bermeya". Asturian socialist flag often used by left-wing nationalist asturian parties such as Andecha Astur

Nationalism and regionalism is present in the politics spectrum of the Principality of Asturias. Although Asturian nationalist parties such as Partíu Asturianista did have institutional representation in the Asturian parliament and government and others such as Andecha Astur have also political representation in some municipalities nowadays, the nationalist movement can be sometimes seen more at a level of social movement than an element with a clear institutional representation.

These movements are usually rooted in the several stages of political sovereignty that Asturias has lived, with the time of Kingdom of Asturias between the years 718 and 925, the declaration of sovereignty of The General Assembly of the Principality of Asturias of 1808, the Socialist Asturian Republic in 1934 and Sovereign Assembly of Asturias and Leon of 1937 as highlights, although these two last historical events hardly can be seen as sovereigntist movements.

Present Asturian nationalism includes political parties and organizations from the left political spectrum, with the socialist Andecha Astur/Darréu, Unidá and Bloque por Asturies in the left-wing, and the social-democrat Partíu Asturianista. However, all together they do not represent more than a minimal part of the Asturian society.
