  3. 3. • Khmer Republic, 1970-1975 • Lon Nol overthrew Sihanouk in 1970 and on 9 October 1970 a new flag was introduced. This flag was used until April 1975 • Democratic Kampuchea, 1975-1979 • In January 1976 the new constitution of "Democratic Kampuchea" established a new flag. It was a red field with a three-towered yellow representation of Angkor Wat; however, this was much stylized and only called "monument", not "Angkor Wat" in the constitution. This flag was used until January 1979
  4. 4. • People's Republic of Kampuchea, 1979- 1989 • The new People's Republic of Kampuchea introduced a flag based on the 1976-1979 flag, but having five towers instead of three.

  5. 5. • Kingdom of Cambodia, 1993-Present • On 30 June 1993 the old 1948-1970 flag has been reestablished as the flag of Cambodia. However, obviously the Angkor Wat is now usually outlined black, not red Hope this stays forever!!

Remember!! • 1991-1993 (UN administration) • Under the UN administration (UNTAC = United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia) Cambodia used a UN blue flag with a white map of the country in the centre (and the blue inscription of the country's name). However, Not sure when this flag was introduced, but some documents claim that it was on 24 June 1991. The most important steps to peace in Cambodia happened only in October 1991 (peace treaty in Paris; decision of UN security council to send UN peace forces).
