The whole of the ancient kingdom of Korea became a Japanese Protectorate in 1905 and was formally annexed by Japan in 1910. After World War II, Korea was divided by the Allies at the 38th parallel, the north being allotted to the USSR, and the south going to the USA. In 1948, North Korea declared itself a Democratic Peoples Republic. The Traditional Flag of Korea was red, white and blue.
These colours were maintained, but the red stripe was expanded, the white stripe decreased, and a red star in a white disc was added. The star symbolizes revolutionary traditions and the "glorious future" that communism would bring, the blue symbolizes a desire for peace, the white is for purity and the sovereignty of the nation, and the red represents revolutionary patriotism and the fighting spirit.Contact us to purchase
