Most Cambodians consider themselves to be Khmers, descendants of the
Angkor Empire that extended over much of Southeast Asia and reached
its zenith between the 10th and 13th centuries.
The flag of Cambodia consists of three horizontal stripes - the top
and bottom stripes are blue and of equal size; and the center stripe
is a larger red one with a white emblem representing the towers of
Angkor Wat in the middle of it.
Flag of Cambodia: three horizontal bands of blue (top), red (double
width), and blue with a white three-towered temple representing Angkor
Wat outlined in black in the center of the red band; only national
flag to incorporate an actual building in its design
