The China Flag
The China Flag has five yellow stars on a red background.
The red background symbolizes the revolution and the blood of those who died during the civil war and the Japanese invasion.
On the upper left corner there are five yellow stars: One large and four smaller ones.
The large yellow star represents the Communist Party leadership.
The four smaller stars represent the four classes of society as prescribed by Chairman Mao: the working class, the peasantry, the urban petty bourgeoisie, and the national bourgeoisie.
The four divisions of society in a more historical context, refers to the model of society in ancient China greatly influenced by the teachings of Confucius:
The four smaller stars surrounding the larger star represent the unity of the Chinese people under the leadership of the Party and their golden color represent the yellow race of the Chinese people.
The Chinese Flag was flown for the first time at Beijing's Tiananmen Square on October 1, 1949, at the celebration of the founding of the People's Republic of China soon after the Communist Party came to power.
