Brief heestory[eedit | eedit soorce]

Since aroond 1850, the Cambodien flag haes featured a depiction o Angkor Wat in the center. The current flag, wi a blue border an red central (the stripes ar in the ratio 1:2:1) wis adoptit followin Cambodie's independence in 1948. It wis uised till October 9, 1970, when a new flag wis introduced for Lon Nol's Khmer Republic that lasted till the takeover o the Khmer Rouge in 1975. The subsequent state o Democratic Kampuchea, which existed frae 1975 tae 1979, uised a red flag wi a three-towered Angkor Wat design retained in yellow.

The Fowkrepublic o Kampuchea wis established in 1979, efter the Vietnamese invasion o Cambodi. The Kampuchean Naitional Unitit Front for Naitional Salvation (FUNSK) revived the flag adopted bi the Khmer Issarak in the days o anti-French resistance for the new state. This flag haed the same color pattern as the DK flag, but wi a yellow five-touered Angkor Wat silhouette. When the PRK renamed itself as "State o Cambodia" (SOC) in 1989, the flag's lawer half became blue. The UNTAC flag wis used during the 1992-1993 transitional period alang wi the flag o the SOC within Cambodia.

In 1993 the 1948 Cambodian banner wis readopted. The current Cambodian banner holds the distinction o being the anerlie banner in the warld tae feature a building in its design. Red an blue ar traditional colors o Cambodie.

The flag uised today is the same as that established in 1948, although since then 5 ither designs hae been used. These hae almost all made uise o the image o the temple o Angkor Wat in ane form or anither. This famous temple site, which dates frae the 12t century, wis built bi the Mahidharapura monarchs. It haes 5 touers, but these wur no always all depicted in the stylized version uised on flags. The temple also appears on the arms. The monarchy wis restored in September 1993, the 1948 flag haein been readopted in Juin o that year.
