Flag of the Movement for United Georgia - Image by Szymon Pawlas, 31 July 2011
Irakli Okruashvili (b. 1973) intially supported Saakhasvili's National Movement and served in 2004-2006, successively, as the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Economic Development. He created the Movement for United Georgia in September 2007 and was arrested on 2 September 2007 for corruption, money laundering and abuse of office. He eventually was granted political asylum in France in April 2008.

A photo (InterPressNews, 14 February 2008), shows "Irakli Okruashvili's party reps trying to enter their office". On the photograph, a man is holding a white flag with a red border and a red symbol, seemingly a human silhouette, surrounded by a writing in Georgian script.

A photo (4 May 2009) shows the flag,
as swallow-tailed, white with red fimbriation, charged with the red logo
of the movement in the centre.
The logo consists of four pictograms showing humans, forming the shape of a letter "X", where the dots imitating heads are placed in the centre of the logo. There is also the name of the party written in Georgian (Mkhedruli alphabet) surrounding the logo.
