Our North Korean flag is constructed in the USA from nylon, a lightweight fabric that flies regally even in gentle breezes. Nylon is also quick-drying, which helps prevent mildew growth after rain and high humidity. The stripes and star are digitally printed for accuracy and vibrant, fade-resistant colors.

These flags come equipped with a sturdy canvas header and brass grommets for secure attachment to any of our outdoor flagpoles. We offer the North Korean flag in sizes 2’ x 3’, 3’ x 5’, 4’ x 6’, 5’ x 8’, and 6’ x 10’.

North Korea Flag Meaning & History

North and South Korea both initially used the Taegukgi, which is still South Korea’s national flag today. Following World War II, Korea was removed from Japanese control, with the northern half assigned to the USSR and the southern half to the US. In 1947, the USSR decided North Korea should have a new flag, which was adopted as the national flag when the country became independent in 1948.

The red star on the North Korean flag is traditionally associated with communism, a symbol that has been kept despite the North Korean government’s switch to the Juche ideology. The red field represents revolution, the blue stripes symbolize peace and friendship, and the white lines stand for unity.
