Myanmar Flag HistoryThe Myanmar Flag History
Burma: former banners
Blue Midshipman, Myanmar emblem on the fly (a gold disc, a real colored pepper overlayed). At the February 1939 Diaconia Assembly, the Governor of Burma officially recognized this flag like other states. Myanmar's insignias, the peacocks on this flag, are from King Mindon's 1-Kyat piece.
It was within a circular line whose 4/9 diameters corresponded to the width of the flag. In other words, the circular section is 45% of the width of the flag. It was a peach in its own colour, mainly regal blues, yellow-green and deep-golden. If I can recall, the area between the rim of the pepper and the rim of the circles should be golden.
Burma's flag book badge[new92] was "mostly navy with a little gold". The Burma insignia will appear there after careful consideration of the detail picture in the flag book: The red pepper is always (light) purple, all borders, shadows etc. are in regal blues, the nibs hanging on the back of the nape are rose with blues and the nice, ovale "medallions" at the end of each penn. are golden.
A very thin tray of the same bright blue and blue color is placed on top of the very thin one. The tray extends to the edge of the circular area. Areas between the peach and the rims of the circles are all made of amber. Incidentally, when the insignia is used on the governor's flag, the crown is not the default, but one of the olive-like twigs, with a band but without fruit, all dyed in the same bright cyan.
I' d say that the bright blue is something like RGB 0-255-204. For this reason, the color of the "golden" inks in the pictures should be rather deep color. For the time being, the Provisionary Pro-Japanese Goverment accepted the flag of the Synyethe-Wunthann political group as an informal flag (yellow, a strip of grass on the top, accused with a roundabout red).
Dirk's compilation shows a flag above an amber with a center round in it. Perhaps this is a variation of the flag of the Poor Men's Party, the party that resisted the marionette state. It is described as having the flag above turning orange with a risen star in the top area.
This is only half of the amount of light with several small and brief ray. This flag was used during the time of the Japans. It was an alliance of the Sinyetha Wunthanu parties, governed by Ba Maw, chairman of the marionette regime, and the Thakin society, governed by Aung San, head of Burma's "national" military.
In 1943 the adoption of the flag remained a matter of controversy. On August 1, 1943, the Japanese founded a marionette state in Burma. It is described in several shapes, but was probably horizontal deep blue, black and blue, with a round scarlet ring containing the brown pepper in color. One tri-band, yellow-green-red from top to bottom, a stylized fawn on a blank disc overall.
That was after the flag of the independent political group, whose colors came from the radically nationwide Doubama flag, 1930 - 1938, and were witnessed in a flag of the liberating military, 1941. Anyone have a good image of this flag? Between 1942-1948 the yellow-green-red pepper flag was slightly altered, with the only exception that the peacock's nibs were drawn in geometric pattern.
I found a Japanese-language paper in 2001 showing the flag of the Independent State of Burma, which was adopted on August 1, 1943 and abrogated on August 1, 1945. It is a yellow-green-red flag with a pepper on a slice of it. It is actually a calendula color like the Manchukou flag and can sometimes look amber.
Back then, the names of Buddhism were shown in the 1943 issue of the Japan newspaper as yellows, greens for farming and reds for courage. You can see postage-stamps with the flag of the marionette state Burma (1943-1945) at http://www.tibetanpost.com/images/items/B/burj0035.jpg. It has a clear styling - a tri-band with the pepper in the middle.
Myanmar's flag at the time is also shown. They were fighting under a flag of reds with a whitestar. At this time the English flag with peacocks was also used. A number of springs indicate that this was on the top linkage, not centered. Later on, this order became the foundation for the nation's flag.
Smith (1975c) and Smith (1982) mention the flag of the anti-fascist resistance movement in the history of the flag: the flag is shown in the top dress with a small asterisk. Of course, this is just an effort to recreate it without even know where exactly and how big the asterisk is.
Smith described that this flag is the base for the later flag (blue cantonal and 5 smaller stars) and indirect also for the actual one. I' m guessing that this flag is also the base for the FBC/NLD-plates. This is the Blaue Fähnrich, burmesisches insignia on the fly (a gold disc, a real colored Peafowl).
Like the flag from 1939-1941. There' s also an open edition: In a chart in Signal newspaper in Germany (the last edition for 1943, the Italien version) the Burmese flag is shown in bright green with probably a pepper on it. That may sound similar to the 1941-1942 flag, but with a different color background: Does anyone have more information?
Myanmar was an administrative part of the Indian Empire, but it seems that it was the unprotected Union flag that was used until sometime in 1939. Myanmar was detached from the Indian Empire on April 1, 1937, but the Union flag and the Blue Flag with the peacocks pattern were only permitted on February 9, 1939.
"The King has sanctioned the flag of Burma. So far it has been the Union flag. In the Blue Ensign; a pepper in a golden backdrop in a ring in natural colors. The governor is the same on a Union flag with festoon. "The motif for peacocks comes from King Mindon's 1852 embossing in sterling.
Burma's pro-British opposition to Japan in 1942-1945 used a old crimson flag with the old English insignia (in 1945 he began to use the crimson flag with a blank asterisk in the canton). The flag is also used by the Federalist Union of Burma at http://federalistpartyburma.org/aboutus. astx, which also declares the policy objectives of the party:
"cWe are a party of politicians who believe in democracies and federalisms, and we want to create a Burmese community in which every nation has equality of right and can fully benefit from the enjoyment of humankind, and individuals of different racial backgrounds have the authority to regulate their own internal matters in their own ethnical areas, and the right of the nation is safeguarded by legislation, and the legislation is passed by the chosen popular legislation (states and states) in accordance with a democratic state.
" It is unclear whether the members of the FOTW have adopted this flag after Jaume's design or whether they consider themselves part of the resistance against the present system, so that they use the same flag as their pre-war and during the Second World War predecessors.
In 1948 the flag is marked 1948 in bright pink with a big square with one big and five small cantons. Burma's older flag (from a publication in the early 1960s) was also depicted as all reds with a golden asterisk in the top lefthand corner and five smaller asterisks.
It is the flag of independance ("Union of Burma, Chans and Karens"), the first flag of the nation. Burma's biggest flag is the flag of the Antifascist League of the Burmese people, a small square with a small flag in the city. These five smaller asterisks, known for their sincerity, are the five most important nationalities: the five most important nationalities: the five most important ethnicities: the five most important:
In a letter to the Burmese people, Mr Evan (1970) said that "Burma" relied "its new flag on the insignia of the opposition movements during the Japan War. It has a bright yellow flag with a large flag and a large flag with a large flag on it. The flag is marked by five smaller cantons. "They fly a six-star flag (1948-1974).
They want to go back to the old flag, I suppose. For this draft, the 5:9 proportion with a flag half the width of the flag and a 5:8 proportion was defined in Section 215 of the 1947 Constitution, which states: "The flag measures nine by five foot, the flag measures four by two and a half foot".
I' ve adjusted them so that the centres of the circumscribed circuits are on the circumscribed circular arc (which of course is centred in the centre of the canton). Burma's former civil/commercial flag was adopted in 1952 and, as far as I know, used until 1974, when the present flag was adopted - confirming or correcting this date would be welcome.
Flag with coat of arm in the green area. I' ve got an issue of Jane's Fighting Ships from 1954 showing three banners (in b/w line drawings) for Burma: President's standard: a real pepper in full feathers, in the middle of a safranfeld ("saffron field" is marked in the text).
Marineflag: The flag consists of six five-pointed seven-pointed stars-wit, in the middle of a square in the middle of a navy. These 5 smaller georeferenced geodes are located around the large center asterisk, for example at the 1 o'clock, 4 o'clock, 6 o'clock, 8 o'clock and 11 o'clock position (i.e. centrally between the 5 branches of the large center asterisk).
Other flags are the same as the flag of the Great Britain (i.e., a Saint George cross on a blank field). That''national flag'' (merchant flag?): Like the naval flag, the box is solid colored redd. Pale violet area with the cantonal flag and the roundabout (blue-white-golden triangle) on the lower bow tie.
