Flag of Malawi
Malawi
Adopted July 6, 1964
Designed by (unknown)
Proportions 2:3 [1]

The flag of Malawi was adopted on July 6, 1964.

The rising sun represents the dawn of hope and freedom for the continent of Africa (when the flag was created, countries in Africa were just beginning to be granted independence). The black represents the people of the continent, the red symbolizes the martyrs of African freedom, and the green represents nature.

The flag resembles the pan-African designed by Marcus Garvey's UNIA, with the red and black bands reversed and a red sun in the top. It also resembles the Biafra Flag of the now-defunct Republic of Biafra.

The colours of the flag are defined using British Standard colours:

Scheme Black Red Green
British Standard Colours 0-000 0-005 0-010
