Flags of the World: Cambodia

The Cambodia flag is especially meaningful to the people who reside there. Originally adopted in 1948, the design had to be abandoned when Lon Nol’s Khmer Republic established rule in the area. Other designs were used during Khmer Rouge and the state of Democratic Kampuchea, until 1993, when the Cambodian monarchy was reestablished.

It is one of only two flags in the world that depicts an important building. In the middle of the flag sits Angkor Wat, which also happens to be the largest religious temple in the world.

The colors chosen for the flag are meaningful as well. Blue symbolizes the nation’s royalty, red represents the nation itself, and white represents religion. Angkor Wat sits on a horizontal red stripe that is bordered on the top and bottom with smaller stripes of blue.
