The first paragraph of the article seems to suggest the hammer and sickle symbolize communism. I may be misinformed, but I remember reading (as far as the red flag of the Soviet Union is concerned) that the star represents the Communist Party, the hammer the prole, the sickle the peasant and the color red represents revolution. I understand the hammer and sickle have come to symbolize communism (and are used by communist parties as such), but it seems rather critical to note that without the star, the symbolism can be interpreted differently, revealing the value of the star itself. Shared knowledge on this subject would be appreciated. --184.108.40.206 22:29, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
