Facts about the flag:
The flag of Vietnam was adopted on the 30th of November, 1955, with the proportions 2:3. The flag features a red background with a large, yellow, five-pointed star in the middle.
The red color represents communism, but it also symbolizes the blood of the victims shed during the fight for independence. The golden star in the middle of the flag represents the five social classes that combine to create socialism. The five social classes are: workers, peasants, academics, young people and soldiers.
Today's national flag is largely the same as the flag used by the liberation movement Vietminh, in the fight for independence. It also became the flag of North Vietnam in 1955. When the war was over, the flag was raised as a national flag of Vietnam on the 2nd of July, 1976.
