The Liberal Alliance (Greek: Φιλελεύθερη Συμμαχία Fileleftheri Simmakhia ) is a liberal political party in Greece founded February of 2007. Its stated purpose is to cover the political ground between what it considers to constitute a conservative New Democracy and the socialist PASOK [1].

The highest organ in Liberal Alliance is its congress, which elects a new president every 2 years and a 15-member administration committee.

Liberal Alliance's founding document is the Proclamation of Anavisos[1], written on 28 April 2007. It contains a reference to Victor Hugo.

The symbol of Liberal Alliance is like @ but instead of 'a' it has the Greek phi letter, which is also the first letter of the word Liberal in the Greek language, while the dominating colours are purple and yellow. (initially the logo was the head of Adamantios Korais, until the first congress)
