Symbols

In its early days the party used a maroon cockade, which was customary for parties of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since the first civil war the party has used the hammer and sickle, first only appearing in the party's flag and then being used by its modern logo.

The party uses the march titled,"The Red Banner" as its primary anthem. It used to use a modified version of the State Anthem of the CTCR but halted use of it do to its purported "soiling" by the Republic of Tarper.

Special organizations

Notable sub-organizations of the CPT are:

  • Alliance for Left Communism (ALLCO), Caucus created to drive the party towards a non-authoritarian form of Communism.
  • Tarperti League of Young Communists (TLYC), Youth and Student group of the party.
  • The Left Party (LEFT), Coalition of Socialists and Moderate Communists.
  • Rebirth Coalition (RC), Members who wish to return to CTCR era policy and stop chasing the SP.
