The red star of Communism can be seen on this flag on a white disc. The flag of North Korea was adopted in 1948, when Northern portion of Korea became a Communist state. The traditional Korean flag was red, white, and blue. The country retained these colours (with more prominence given to the red) and added a red star on a white disk. The disk recalls the taegeuk found on the flag of South Korea, and represents the opposing principles of nature. The red stripe expresses revolutionary traditions; the red star is for Communism. The two blue stripes stand for sovereignty, peace and friendship. The white stripes symbolize purity.
