The flag with a star on the left side of this photo is the national flag of Vietnam. It is called the red flag with golden star. I don't know if it is customary to fly the national flag on national holidays in Vietnam like Japan, or if this was even a public holiday, but there were many large flags on the side of the road in Ben Tre where I was walking.

As I watched the flags being hoisted, a mother wearing a conical hat and peddling a bike slowly came into view. She was riding leisurely with her child in front of her. The red flag with golden star and a conical hat. I noticed a symbolic representation of Vietnam coincidentally appearing in the same viewfinder and hurriedly snapped the shutter.
