Vietnam

The flag of Vietnam has a yellow five pointed star on a red background. This star is a popular device on many flags, we define the star once and use it many times in later flags.

The given star has a radius of 50, it is centred on 0,0 which is the wrong place. We must translate to put it in the right place. We can use the translate method to move the star to the right location.

The translate call is to the wrong location (50,50) - it should be at (100,75).
