Flag of Rwanda

Use: National flag

Designed by: Alphonse Kirimobenecyo
The flag of Rwanda was adopted on October 25, 2001.

Details
The flag has four colours: blue, green, yellow, and gold. The blue band represents happiness and peace, the yellow band symbolizes economic development, and the green band symbolizes the hope of prosperity. The gold sun represents enlightenment.

The new flag represents national unity, respect for work, heroism, and confidence in the future. It was adopted to avoid connotations to the 1994 genocide. The flag was designed by Alphonse Kirimobenecyo.

When hung vertically, the flag should be displayed as the horizontal version rotated clockwise 90 degrees.
