The National Liberation Front was the political arm of the Vietcong, the South Vietnamese insurgent group which fought against the government of South Vietnam and the United States during the Vietnam War. The pictured flag was adopted by the NLF in 1960. Buttons similar to this were worn by Americans opposed to that War.
