North Korea’s flag, also known as the Ramhongsaek Konghwagukgi (Korean: literally “blue and red-colored flag of the republic”), is mainly composed of a central red panel with a short white line and a large blue stripe on both sides. A five-pointed red star is set within a white circle on the center red panel near the hoist. The flag is prohibited from public display in South Korea due to its ties to the governing North Korean dictatorship. However, there are rare exceptions.

Article 170 of Chapter VII of the North Korean constitution establishes the official definition of the North Korean national flag. It claims that:

“The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s national flag has a central red panel flanked on both sides by a narrow white stripe and a large blue stripe. A five-pointed red star is set within a white circle on the center red panel near the hoist. The width to length proportion is 1:2.”

The prominent motif on the North Korean flag is a red star, a universal symbol of communism and socialism. However, since the flag’s adoption, Juche has replaced communist authority as the state’s guiding ideology, and references to communism have been systematically removed from the country’s constitution and legal documents. The constitution, however, continues to be socialist. Despite several amendments to the constitution, the flag’s description has always stayed the same.

According to the Korean Friendship Association’s website, the red star signifies revolutionary traditions, while the red panel depicts the Korean people’s patriotism and fortitude. The white stripes represent the Korean nation’s and culture’s unification. The blue stripes signify a willingness to strive for independence, peace, friendship, and global togetherness.


Kim Il-sung attributed the following meaning to the flag’s components, according to a typical North Korean official statement published in Rodong Sinmun:

The flag’s crimson hue represents an anti-Japanese feeling, as well as the blood poured by Korean patriots and the indomitable strength of our people united in their support for the Republic. Our monoethnic country’s white represents one lineage, one territory, one language, and one civilization that existed in purity. Blue represents our nation’s valiant appearance and the spirit of the Korean people striving for world peace and prosperity.

The colors of the North Korean flag are red, white, and blue, which represent revolutionary traditions, purity, strength, dignity, sovereignty, peace, and friendship, respectively.

According to Korea specialist and researcher Brian Reynolds Myers, the Korea flag’s Workers’ Party and the KPA Supreme Commander’s standard are held in more regard in North Korea than the North Korean national flag, with the Supreme Commander’s flag commanding the most respect.
