Introduction

The flag seems to have changed to the present one in April 2002, according to North Korea Magazine and videos. Both former and new flags have two version: 2:3 (emblem centered) and 1:2 (emblem towards hoist.)

Source is a photograph from the Arirang festival; accuracy indeterminate. This version is also included in the Corr 3. of the Album 2000, with the note that it is not confirmed.

I'm attaching a picture of the recent North Korean parade for your consideration. I couldn't identify the flag at the right. I searched the North Korea pages to no avail.

It seems to be very similar to Supreme Commander's flag.

I think you're right, its just an effect of the light that make it look 2 tones.

A stamp from North Korea shows this flag, describeed as "Flag of the Supreme Commander and an officer of military parade". It a flag for the Head of State, as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces?

In the Corr. 4 of the Album it was replaced with a similar but slightly different (and multicoloured) version, still noted to be unconfirmed.
