Flag description
This is the new flag of Rwanda, effective
1-Jan-2002. The new flag has a golden sun with 24
rays on a field of green, yellow and blue. The
red and black colors of the old flag were
replaced by sky blue, with the yellow rays of the
sun shining down from the top right-hand corner.
Unlike the old Rwanda flag, this flag has no red,
with its connotations of blood spilt, nor black
with its symbolism of gloom and mourning.
