The Angolan flag is based on the flag of the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), which fought Portuguese colonial rule and emerged as the ruling party of Angola following the Angolan Civil War. The MPLA flag is similar to the flag of Angola but features a star in place of the central emblem.
In the 1960s and ’70s countries in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere were struggling for independence after decades of colonial rule. Many looked with admiration at the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam (a communist-directed organization with a military force known as the Viet Cong) for its strategy, principles, and above all its success in challenging France and the United States. The Viet Cong flag (equal horizontal stripes of red over light blue with a yellow five-pointed star in the centre) was widely known and used by radical groups around the world. Its design was the probable inspiration for the flag chosen by the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), one of several groups fighting against Portuguese rule in that territory.
