The Swedish Social Democratic Workers' Party, (Swedish: Sveriges socialdemokratiska arbetareparti, SAP; literally, "Social Democratic Workers' Party of Sweden"), contesting elections as 'The Workers' Party – The Social Democrats' (Arbetarepartiet-Socialdemokraterna), usually referred to just as 'The Social Democrats' (Socialdemokraterna); is the oldest and largest political party in Sweden, founded in 1889. In 1917, a schism occurred when the left socialists split from the Social Democrats to form the Swedish Social Democratic Left Party (now the Left Party). The symbol of the SAP is traditionally a red rose, which is believed to have been Fredrik Ström's idea.


On 7 December 2008, the Social Democrats launched the Red-Greens together with the Greens and the Left Party. The parties contested the 2010 election but lost the election to the centre-right Alliance. On 26 November 2010 the Red-Green alliance was dissolved.
