Flag of Malawi 🇲🇼

Flag of Malawi

The current form of the flag of Malawi 🇲🇼 was approved in 1964. The flag consists of three horizontal stripes - black, yellow and green. In the black bar, a symbol of rising sun with 31 rays is located. The black color is supposed to symbolize the people of the country, the red stands for bloodshed in the struggle for independence of African states and the green represents vegetation of Malawi. The theme of the rising sun reminds hope after achieving independence, but also the meaning of word Malawi - an effect which occurs over the Lake Nyasa at sunset. The flag was inspired by the flag of the Malawi Congress Party.
