Since around 1850, The national flag of Cambodia has featured a depiction of Angkor Wat (a temple complex at Angkor, Cambodia) in the center. The current flag, with a blue border and red central (the stripes are in the ratio 1:2:1) was adopted following Cambodia's independence in 1948. It was used until October 9, 1970, when a new flag was introduced for Lon Nol's Khmer Republic that lasted until the takeover of the Khmer Rouge in 1975. In 1993 the 1948 Cambodian flag was readopted. The current Cambodian flag, together with that of Afghanistan , hold the distinction of being the only two flags in the world to feature a building in their design. The blue, red, and white colours symbolize different meanings for each; the Angkor Wat and white symbolize 'Integrity, justice and heritage'; Theravada Buddhism and Blue stand for 'Liberty, cooperation and Brotherhood'; the King and Red for 'Bravery, Trying, and the People'. Red and blue are traditional colors of Cambodia.
