The current Cambodian flag is the seventh used since 1948, when the country gained independence. All but one bore the silhouette of the ancient temple of Angkor Wat, built in the 12th century, which is said to be one of the most impressive temples in the world. Before 1989 the flag featured a plain red background with the five towers of the temple, with two steps on either side of the towers.
The number of towers distinguished this flag, adopted in 1978 by the Vietnamese controlled puppet government of the National United Front for the Salvation of Kampuchea, from the three towers of the flag used by the Khmer Rouge under Pol Pot from 1975 to 1978. With the withdrawal of the Vietnamese in 1989, the current "flag of national unity" was introduced, retaining the five towers, but on a background of blue and red.Contact us to purchase
