Kim Il Sung Square Gets A New Look

UPDATE: A review of photos of the square's main ministerial building show that the Korean Workers Party drapes and national flags have been changed and moved around several times over the past two years. Please therefore disregard previous reporting which suggested this particular change may have been of significance.

Kim Jong Un's government have removed a large iconic portrait of North Korea’s founding leader Kim Il Sung from a ministerial building in Pyongyang’s main square. This was one of a number of new changes made to the appearance of Kim Il Sung square which have been observed through a study of recently uploaded tourist photos.
