HistoryEdit

The flag was introduced on July 10, 1948, two months before the Democratic People's Republic of Korea was proclaimed. Previously, however, the traditional Korean t'aegŭkflagof white with a central red-blue disk and four sets of black bars was official in North Korea. Like many other countries, North Korea has utilized its flag as an instrument of foreign policy; a huge version flies outside the small building at P'anmunjŏm where armistice negotiations were held.[1]
