Original U.S. Vietnam War Bringback North Vietnamese People’s Army Flag - 29 ½” x 20”
Original Item: Only One Available. The People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN; Vietnamese: Quân đội Nhân dân Việt Nam), also known as the Vietnamese People's Army (VPA), is the military force of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. The PAVN is a part of the Vietnam People's Armed Forces and includes: Ground Force, Navy, Air Force, Border Guard & Coast Guard. However, Vietnam does not have a separate Ground Force or Army branch. All ground troops, army corps, military districts and specialized arms belong to the Ministry of Defense, directly under the command of the Central Military Commission, the Minister of Defense, and the General Staff of the Vietnam People's Army.
During the French Indochina War (1946–1954), the PAVN was often referred to as the Việt Minh. In the context of the Vietnam War (1955–1975), the army was referred to as the North Vietnamese Army (NVA). This allowed writers, the U.S. military, and the general public, to distinguish northern communists from the southern communists, called Viet Cong or National Liberation Front. However, both groups ultimately worked under the same command structure. The Viet Cong had its own military forces called the Liberation Army of South Vietnam (LASV). It was considered a branch of the PAVN by the North Vietnamese. In 2010, the PAVN undertook the role of leading the 1,000th Anniversary Parade in Hanoi by performing their biggest parade in history.
The flag measures 29 ½” x 20” and is all red with a white star sewn into the center. The left side had a pocket for hoist and mounting purposes. The flag shows no signs of significant damage but there is fading to the colors.
