The Banner o Vietnam frae 1976, offeecially the Socialist Republic o Vietnam, kent as the "red banner wi yellae starn" (cờ đỏ sao vàng) an aw, wis designed in 1940 an uised that year durin an uprisin against French rule in Cochincheenae. The banner wis uised bi the Việt Minh, a communist-led organization creatit in 1941 tae oppose Japanese occupation. When the Japanese surrendered at the end o Warld War II, Việt Minh leader Ho Chi Minh proclaimed the Democratic Republic o Vietnam in Hanoi wi hissel as preses. Hồ signed a decree on 5 September 1945 adoptin the Việt Minh banner as the banner o the DRV. The DRV became the govrenment o North Vietnam in 1954 follaein the Geneva Accords. The banner wis modifee'd in 1955 tae mak the edges o the starn sharper.
