The flag of Vietnam is our national symbol and proud.
The flag includes a large yellow 5-pointed star on red back ground. The size ratio is 2:3 (length 1½ times the height).
This flag originated from 1945 when Vietnam claimed independence from French and Japanese. Since then, there’ve been several changes due to wars and territorial separation. After country re-unification in 1975, our national flag remained as it is now.
If you visit Hanoi these days, you’ll have a chance to watch special flag hoisting ceremony in Ba Dinh Square, in front of the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.
The ceremony is held at 6 am every day and attracts many locals and visitors. At 9pm, the flag lowering procedure with similar rituals take places.
