Origin of PKK

A state of war has existed since 1980 as the Turkish government has repeatedly sought to crush the radical Marxist rebellion of the Kurds. Abdulla Ocalan founded the Partiya Karkeren Kurdistan (PKK, or Kurdish Workers' Party) in 1978.

PKK Flag Variant 3by Victor Lomantsov, 7 July 2003

A.Basov of Minsk told me he saw many times the flag of Kurdish nation in Russia: a red field with a red five-pointed star on a yellow many-pointed star.

I've enountered this flag on the Internet as the flag of PKK (or KADEK after changing the name). That explains why Kurds use this flag!
