Flag of Myanmar

My first postcard from Myanmar is a flag postcard. The current flag of Myanmar was adopted on 21 October 2010 to replace the former flag in use since 1974. The new flag was introduced along with implementing changes to the country's name, which were laid out in the 2008 Constitution. The design of the flag has three horizontal stripes of yellow, green and red with a five-pointed white star in the middle. The three colours of the stripes are meant to symbolise solidarity, peace and tranquility, and courage and decisiveness.

This very nice wide stamp is from set Government Buildings, issued on 16.06.2016.

Thank you Hlwann!
