The Vietnam War NVA Flag, officially known as the National Flag of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is a symbol of the country's history and struggle for independence. It was created in 1940 and was used in the resistance against French colonial rule in southern Vietnam. The flag features a red background, representing revolution and sacrifice, along with a golden star that represents the five main classes in Vietnam society: intellectuals, farmers, workers, entrepreneurs, and soldiers.

The Viet Minh, a communist-led organization founded in 1941, used this flag during their opposition to Japanese occupation. In 1945, leader Ho Chi Minh declared Vietnam independent and designated the Viet Minh flag as the emblem of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. The DRV became the government of North Vietnam in 1954 following the Geneva Accords. The star on the flag was straightened on November 30th, 1955. South Vietnam used a yellow flag with three red stripes until the end of the Vietnam War in 1975. The red flag of North Vietnam was then adopted as the flag of a unified Vietnam in 1976. This flag stands out among those of ASEAN, as it features only the colors red and yellow/gold without any white.

This Flag Measures an astonishing 15’ (ft) by 41” (inches).
