Flag of DPRK 

  

The flag of DPRK was designed in 1947. The red space symbolizes the "fighting spirit" of Korean revolutionaries, shed blood under the red standard. The white circle and two thin white lines from the both sides of the red space signifies unity of the Korean nation - "people of the white clothes". Red star in the white circle means revolutionary traditions. Two blue stripes on the top and bottom sides of the flag are explained as a symbol of DPRK sovereignty and her solidarity with revolutionary peoples of the world. But it is also probably just the seas from the western and the eastern parts of the country.

 The ratio of width and length of the North Korean flag is 1 to 2.
