Laos

The flag of Laos was adopted in December 1975 when the country became a people's republic. The flag had previously been used by the short-lived Lao Issara government of 1945-46, then by the Pathet Lao.

The flag consists of three horizontal strips, middle blue strip is twice the height of the top and bottom red stripes. In the middle is a white disc. It is one of the few Communist flags that does not use the five-pointed star as an emblem.

From 1953 onward the royal government waged war with the Pathet Lao, whose flag was blue with a white disk and red borders at the top and bottom. From 1973-1975, the Pathet Lao formed part of the government coalition, before assuming power directly and prompting the abdication of the king. Their flag was adopted as the national flag. The central white disc symbolizes the unity of the people under the leadership of the Lao People's Revolutionary Party and the country's bright future. It is also said to represent a full moon against the Mekong River. The red stripes stand for the blood shed by the people in their struggle for freedom, and the blue symbolizes their prosperity.
