The flag of Vietnam, known as the “Red Flag with a Yellow Star” (Cờ đỏ sao vàng), features a vibrant red background with a large, centered five-pointed yellow star. Each point of the star represents one of the main classes in Vietnamese society—workers, farmers, soldiers, intellectuals, and youth. The red color symbolizes the bloodshed during the country’s struggle for independence, evoking a sense of revolutionary spirit and the sacrifices of the Vietnamese people. The yellow of the star stands for the color of the skin of the Vietnamese people, a representation of the nation’s unity and the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam, which led the nation to independence. This flag design, adopted in 1955, is laden with historical significance and serves as a powerful symbol of national pride and solidarity.
