Malawi Flag - This design was adopted in 1964 when Malawi became independent from British rule, and changed its name from the colony of Nyasaland to Malawi at the same time. The design consists of a horizontal tri-band of black, red and green stripes. The black stripe has a red rising sun with 31 rays.
Symbolically, the 31 rays represent that Malawi was the 31st African nation at the time to gain independence. The black is for the indigenous people of the land, red for the blood of their struggle and green to represent nature.
In 2010 a new version of this flag was adopted with a white sun instead and 485 rays for the economic progress Malawi had made, however this flag was not accepted or liked by the people and ultimately the flag was changed back to it is now in 2012.
