This relatively short-lived organization (it was dissolved in 1974[3]) had a Patriotic and anti-Communist orientation and was opposed to the insurgency of the Tupamaros and other far-left organizations.[4] It experienced rapid growth, but its armed struggle efforts were relatively less successful.[5] A factional undercurrent of the group desired a national revolution along the lines of Falangism.[3]

The main colours of their flag represent the two traditional major Uruguayan political parties: the National Party (white) and the Colorado Party (red). Presidents Jorge Pacheco Areco and Juan María Bordaberry both spoke positively of the group.[6]
