Myanmar gets new flag, official name, anthem

gbu myanmar flag 220The new flag has a horizontal band of light green at the top, dark green in the center and red at the bottom, with a white star in the middle. There has been no official explanation as to what the colours or the star represent.

With regard to your story “Myanmar gets new flag, official name, anthem,” you say the new flag “has a horizontal band of light green at the top, dark green in the center and red at the bottom.”

The accompanying picture of said flag shows the top band is yellow, not green.

Hope you can rectify the error ASAP

Studied South Asian History in depth @ UBC/Vancouver, & made Dean’s list; in view of their jaded history and misrule since partition from India , suggest a
pirate flag might be more appropriate…
