    August 1.

    On August 1, 1927 the Red Army of China was founded.

    It is now the symbol of PLA, The People's Liberation Army, The Chinese Armed Forces.

    The yellow part is the Chinese characters for numbers "8" ("/ \" is 8) and "1" ("-" is 1), symbolizing August 1st. "A Man" explained the underlying meaning well.
