Facts about the flag:
The flag was adopted on the 2nd of December, 1975. The red on the flag is a symbol of the blood shed in their fight for an independent Laos. The blue color represents the richness of the country, and the white circle, the moon.
The flag was, from the very beginning, a political flag, of the communist party Pathet Lao.
When they came to power in 1975, their flag became the country's national flag. The flag of Laos differs from other flags of communist states, because it lacks the star. When the country was a monarchy from 1952 to 1975, the flag was red with a three-headed elephant.
The elephant is a common symbol of royalty in Southeast Asia, and its three heads are the symbols of the three original kingdoms: Vientiane, Luangprabang and Xiengkhoung.
