The flag was introduced in 1949 on the declaration of the Peoples Republic of China. The red and yellow are traditional colours of China, the other traditional colours being blue, white and black, and red is the traditional color of revolution.
The large 5 pointed gold star represents "the Common Program of the Communist Party", but five also stands for wholeness and perfection in Chinese philosophy; and the smaller gold stars represent the four sections of society that, it was claimed, would be united by and would unite to carry through the common program: the workers, the peasants, the petty bourgeoisie, and capitalists sympathetic to the party (or "patriotic capitalists"). The similarity between this flag and that of the now defunct Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is no coincidence.BUY NOW
