China

The flag of the People's Republic of China consists of a red field with five yellow stars in the top left corner, i.e. one large star pointing upward and four minor stars that circle and point to the main star. Whereas the large star represents the Communist Party, the small stars symbolize the four social classes or castes as defined in Maoism.
