Flag of Myanmar

The current flag of Myanmar has been adopted along with a new constitution in 2010 and it is composed of three horizontal stripes in red, green and yellow colors. In the middle of the flag, a large white five-pointed star is placed. The flag has been inspired by the flag of Burma from the period around the World War II. The yellow stripe refers to solidarity between people, green stands for natural wealth of the country, and the red stripe reminds courage of the local population during numerous fights. The white star symbolizes hope in the unity of all people living in the country. The flag, however, is not viewed positively by everybody, the opposition of the current government, for instance, considers it to be a symbol of attempts to forced assimilation of local ethnic groups.
