The National Flag of the People's Republic of China is a red field with five golden stars charged at the canton (upper left corner). The design features one large star, with four smaller stars in an arc set off towards the fly (the side farthest from the flagpole). The flag has been the national flag of China since the foundation of the People's Republic of China on 1 October 1949.
The red color of the flag represents the Chinese Communist Revolution and the five stars represent the unity of the Chinese people under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The large star represents the CCP, while the four smaller stars represent the four classes of Chinese society: the working class, the peasantry, the urban petty bourgeoisie, and the national bourgeoisie. The placement of the stars in an arc signifies the CCP's role as the guide for the Chinese people.
The flag was first hoisted by the People's Liberation Army (PLA) on a pole overlooking Beijing's Tiananmen Square on 1 October 1949, at a ceremony proclaiming the establishment of the People's Republic of China. It has since become an important symbol of national pride and unity for the Chinese people.
