Flag of Myanmar

Use: National flag, civil and state ensign
Proportion: 2:3
Adopted: 21 October 2010; 8 years ago
Design: A horizontal triband of yellow, green and red; charged with a large white five-pointed star at the centre.
The current flag of Myanmar (also known as Burma) was adopted on 21 October 2010 to replace the former flag in use since 1974. The new flag was introduced along with implementing changes to the country's name, which were laid out in the 2008 Constitution.

The design of the flag has three horizontal stripes of yellow, green and red with a five-pointed white star in the middle. The three colours of the stripes are meant to symbolise solidarity, peace and tranquility, and courage and decisiveness.
