The Flag of Cambodia

The flag of Cambodia consists of three horizontal bands of blue (top), red (double width), and blue (bottom) with a depiction of Angkor Wat in white centered on the red band. The blue bands symbolize the country's royalty, the red represents the nation, and Angkor Wat signifies integrity, justice, and heritage.

History

The current flag of Cambodia was first adopted in 1948, shortly after gaining independence from France, but has undergone several changes due to the country's turbulent political history. It was re-adopted in its original form in 1993 following the restoration of the monarchy. The flag uniquely incorporates the image of Angkor Wat, making it one of the few national flags in the world to feature a building. Throughout the years, the flag has been a symbol of sovereignty, resilience, and the cultural heritage of Cambodia.
