Three horizontal stripes (red, blue (double height), red) with a large white disk in the middle of the blue stripe.

Meaning

The flag of Laos (since 1975) represents a rare specimen among the communist states of the world, since no five-pointed star is integrated in the design. Red symbolizes sacrificed blood in the struggle for freedom; blue symbolizes wealth. The white disc on the blue band symbolizes both the full moon over the mighty Mekong River and unity in the communist system.
