Description

The flag employs colors of Five Elements and the Han character is used for the name Tran.

Photo of the modern use of the flag can be seen here. Consequently, it must have been used by the armed forces of South Vietnam, but currently I know no other details about its use, especially the circumstances of its adoption.
