North Korea Photos Flowers and Rockets

Military soldiers stand in front of a model of North Korea's newest satellite Kwangmyongsong 4 on display at a flower festival, as part of celebrations Monday, Feb. 15, 2016, a day before the 74th birthday anniversary, also known as the "Day of the Shining Star," of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il in Pyongyang, North Korea. Thousands of Pyongyang residents attended Monday’s opening of an elaborate flower exhibit featuring a bright-red begonia named “Kimjongilia” as well as models of North Korea’s latest Kwangmyongsong rocket. Like the begonias, the rocket and the satellite it carried into orbit are named in honor of former leader Kim, who is sometimes called the Kwangmyongsong, or Shining Star, of the nation.
