This is the correct Vietnamese flag
In the July 5 issue, the Clarion Herald published an eight-page section detailing the history of Vietnamese Catholics in the Archdiocese of New Orleans. Due to an editing error, the Clarion Herald published an incorrect flag representing the Republic of Vietnam. The yellow flag with three red stripes is the flag of Vietnamese Nationalist anti-communists – in Vietnam as well as overseas – who left the country due to the violations of human rights by the communist regime. This flag flew over South Vietnam until 1975. The Clarion Herald regrets the error.
