Brief heestoryEedit

Syne aroond 1850, the Cambodien banner haes featurt a depiction o Angkor Wat in the center. The current banner, wi a blue border an reid central (the stripes ar in the ratio 1:2:1) wis adoptit followin Cambodie's unthirldom in 1948. It wis uised till October 9, 1970, when a new banner 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 existit frae 1975 tae 1979, uised a reid banner wi a three-towered Angkor Wat design retained in yellae.

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 banner adoptit bi the Khmer Issarak in the days o anti-French resistance for the new state. This banner haed the same colour pattern as the DK banner, but wi a yellae five-touered Angkor Wat silhouette. When the PRK renamed itself as "State o Cambodia" (SOC) in 1989, the banner's lawer half became blue. The UNTAC banner wis uised during the 1992-1993 transitional period alang wi the banner o the SOC within Cambodie.

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