Kim Il Sung founded the Korean Worker's Party, the ruling political organization of the nation. The Party flag is red bearing the party emblem consisting of three crossed instruments--a hammer for the workers, a hoe for the peasants and a brush for the intellectuals.

As mentioned, the flag of the KWP has the yellow symbol either in the canton or centered. But I've found that it depends on who is displaying the flag and how it is being displayed. When displayed vertically draped from a building, the symbol is centered. When carried in parade by military units, the symbol is in the canton.
