North Korea Flag
North Korea's flag is a symbol of the country's political ideology and national identity. It is also known as the Ramhongsaek Konghwagukgi (Korean: ; literally “blue and red-colored republic flag”) and is occasionally referred to as the flag of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
A central red panel is surrounded by a narrow white stripe on top and bottom and a broad blue stripe. Near the hoist, the central red panel features a five-pointed red star within a white circle. The red hue reflects revolutionary traditions and the blood shed for the revolution and the country, the blue color represents people's sovereignty and unification, and the white color represents the party's principles' purity and brightness.
It should be emphasized that the flag is absolutely illegal under South Korea's National Security Act due to its ties to the ruling North Korean regime. However, it is permitted to be used in rare circumstances such as media coverage, drama and film production, and international sporting events in which the two Koreas compete together.
