Since around 1850, the Cambodian flag has contained a representation of Angkor Wat in the centre. The present flag, with a blue border and red central was accepted following Cambodia's independence in 1948. It was castoff until 9 October 1970, when a new flag was presented for Lon Nol's Khmer Republic that persisted until the overthrow of the Khmer Rouge in 1975. The following state of Democratic Kampuchea, which was from 1975 to 1979, used a red flag with a three-towered Angkor Wat design recalled in yellow beginning in 1976. The People's Republic of Kampuchea was conventional in 1979, after the Vietnamese attack of Cambodia.

In 1993, the Cambodian flag used during 1948 was readopted. The current Cambodian flag, composed with the flag of Afghanistan, Spain, and Portugal, are the only four state flags to feature a structural construction.
