The flag of Laos consists of three horizontal stripes of blue, white, and red, with the middle white stripe being twice the width of the blue and red stripes. The blue stripe represents Laos’ wealth and prosperity, particularly its abundant natural resources and the determination of its people. The white stripe symbolizes the purity, justice, and integrity of the nation’s citizens.
The red stripe represents the courage and sacrifice of the Lao people for independence and their struggle against oppression. Together, the colors reflect the country’s aspirations for peace, solidarity, and national unity. The flag is a proud emblem of Laos’ history, culture, and sovereignty.
