North Korea ISD Calling code is +850
The flag of North Korea, or the Korean People’s Democratic Republic, is composed of red leaf, fringed with blue lines at the top and at the bottom, which are bordered with a white stripes from its inner side. Closer to the left side of the flag, there is a white circle bearing a red five-pointed star. The design of the flag itself indicates that North Korea is a communist country. The flag was adopted in 1948 after the departure of the Soviet troops from the country and it expresses the revolutionary ideas of the North Korean people and its leader Kim Ir-sen. The red color refers to the blood shed during the socialist revolution or to patriotism, blue to peace, and white stands for purity and chastity.
Perhaps the world’s most insular, provocative and challenging country, North Korea is hardly the archetype of an alluring holiday destination. Yet more and more foreigners are signing up for tours of the socialist state. The reason? There’s simply nowhere else on Earth quite like it.
All approved tours begin and end in the country’s capital, Pyongyang. A city of more than 2.5 million inhabitants, the long working hours and strict curfew can often make it appear empty – yet there’s an abundance of socialist sites for the foreign visitor to enjoy.
