Noble intention represented by party flag
  The flag, a symbol of the dignified Workers´ Party of Korea, is fluttering in the clear and blue sky of Korea. The sacred party flag reminds us warmly again of the lofty intention represented by the red flag. In summer one year the great Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il mounted a hill for a while on their way back from their field guidance tour.
  The party flag was flying in the blue sky on the roof of the building of the Central Committee of the WPK in the distance.
  Looking at the party flag for a long while, President Kim Il Sung impressively recalled the days when he had formed the "Down-with-Imperialism Union", saying; How nice the fluttering party flag is! It is said that time flies like an arrow. Tens of years have already passed since we upheld the banner of the Korean revolution. He went on to say: At that time we set it as the programme of the "Down-with-Imperialism Union" to build socialist and communist society in our country and made a pledge before the red flag of the revolution to fight at the risk of our lives for its realization. I worked hard without rest all my life to become a true son of the people. We saved the people from the destiny of the colonial slavery at the cost of our blood and built a people´s society good to live in on this land by the sweat of our brow. We failed to completely realize the pledge we made before the red flag of the "Down-with-Imperialism Union". The road of the revolution we should go is still far and thorny. We can bring earlier the bright future if we go among the people, the great teachers, and work hard without rest while learning from them in the future, too, as in the past. Then he looked at the party flag again before descending from the hill.
  The great Kim Jong Il could not move easily, keeping the President´s noble intention in his heart. Looking at the solemn party flag, he said to officials meaningfully: When we look at the party flag, it makes us feel solemn. The sacred red flag represents the popular masses, that is, worker, peasant and intellectual. I ardently worship the popular masses. I am a servant of the working people. It is the motto of the President as well as my motto that a flower must be grown even on the stone if the people want. At that time the officials looked at the party flag with solemn feelings, keeping his words in their hearts.
  Indeed, the flag of the WPK clearly represents the great revolutionary history of
President Kim Il Sung and the noble idea and intention of the great Kim Jong Il who devoted his all to the accomplishment of the revolutionary cause of Juche. The Korean army and people will vigorously advance towards the final victory, flying higher the red party flag representing the faith and will of respected Kim Jong Un to build a powerful socialist nation on this land, true to the cause of the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
