The spokesman for the committee, U Myint Naing, said that the political group had to file a new draft in order to complete the enrolment proces. "We objected to the flag, the logo and the label, and they were powerful enough to disagree with the design," he said. Since April last year, the complainant has objected to the party's trade marks, which it has examined and approved.
Mr U Myint Naing said that the committee has done its job in accordance with the Act. Ever since its foundation in February, the political group has had various reservations, among other things against its first name " Four Eights Partie. He was criticized for "privatizing" the name of the country's celebrated national insurgency in Myanmar against a violent army in 1988.
At the UEC's motion, which in April notified the founding members of its concern about the name, the political parties in March change their name to "Four Eights People's Party". The spokesman for the Four Eights People's Partys, U Ant Bwe Kyaw, said they will be discussing the case with the UEC on Friday to make a decision on the subject.
Under the rule of registering politically active parties, the UEC must explain to the general public the name, logo and flag of the parties after the parties have received authorisation to do so. In the event that the opposition is maintained, the UEC may order the UEC to change its name and refuse its entry if it does not do so.
Myanmar flags | Myanmar | Story
The Konbaung family, the last king of Burma until the UK invasion, began with King Alaungpaya (1714-1760). Its landmark was the pea, which was still a Myanmar icon until the war. In order to see a full sized flag, simply click on it; you can then post it if you wish.
After the Second Anglo-Burmese Wars in 1852, Britain invaded all of Lower Burma and became part of British India. Already in 1858 Lower Burma belonged to British India and after the Third Anglo-Burma Wars Upper Burma was added in 1886. As a result, the resulting trade unions, Burma, were managed as a provincial government until 1937.
Myanmar was liberated from Britain-India on April 1, 1937. The new flag became formal on February 9, 1939. This was a blue Ensign with a gold disc, a dancin' peach in nature's colors, the symbol of the last royal family, which ended in 1885.
A new flag was adopted on 30 March 1941, in which the logo was placed on a dark green square, removing the Union Jack, which reflected the increasing anti-British sentiment of the nation, which hoped for freedom in the face of an impending Turkish army incursion later this year. In 1941, Japans entered Burma and followed the Burmese National Army, the Burmese Army's armoured wings, founded in Japan in 1940.
Despite the fact that many people from Burma were fighting with the Japans against the British at the beginning, some, mostly from ethnical minority groups, were fighting with the British. And the flag that was shown during the occupancy was the flag of Japan. Sinyetha' s leader Ba Maw became the leader of a marionette regime, while Aung San, who governed Thakin's society, was named the leader of Burma's "national" arme.
In 1942 the temporary pro-Japanese regime took over the flag of the Synyethe-Wunthann political group as an informal flag (yellow, a strip of grass on top, with bright reddish sun). The state of Burma was proclaimed by the Japans on August 1, 1943, in the name of an independant state. But in fact it was a marionette state with the head of state Ba Maw.
On August 1, 1943, the flag was a yellow-green-red tri-band with a pepper on a blank disc. Variations of this flag, with the pepper on a scarlet disc, were also recorded. This flag was abandoned on August 1, 1945; by then the Burmese National Army had changed sides when it was clear that the Japanese had been defeated.
There was an anti-Japanese resistance in Burma during the conflict, the anti-fascist resistance that fought under a flag of reds with a blank flag in the highcoat. That flag may have been the inspirational flag adopted in the independent era. His flag was flushed with a large bright green flag representing the Union and five small whites representing the five nationalities: a large yellow flag, a small yellow flag, a small black flag, a small black flag:
Myanmar, Shans, Karens, Chins and Kachins. It was a symbol of sincerity. 1974 the "Socialist Republic of Burma" was declared in a new parliament. Adopted on December 27, 1973, the new flag symbolizes the "Burmese Way to Socialism", showing a cogwheel and a canoe in the bluish capital, symbolizing industrial and agricultural activities, encircled by 14 five-pointed star for each state and division.
The color has been found to mean bravery and determination, whiteness and virtues and dark blues means freedom and serenity. There was a reconstitutional vote on 10 May 2008 and the country's name was renamed the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. Following the parliamentary election, a new national flag was adopted on 21 October 2010.
Reminiscent of earlier styles, the pattern has three horizonal strips of amber, verdant and reddish with a five-pointed blank stripe in the middle. Myanmar's state label resembles earlier emblem patterns. A general Myanmar chart will appear in the middle and the name of the land is written on a roll below.
At the top a five-pointed asterisk will appear. Myanmar's seven states and seven regions all have their own flag, which is flying in connection with the flag. Because of the many inter-ethnical conflict in the countryside, most communities have their freedom movement and army and have been struggling against the powers of the federal administration since gaining sovereignty; the Panglong Agreement, in which communities have been able to decide their own futures, has never been enforced.
For example, although the Karen have their own Kayin state, they have always sought an autonomous home, Kawthoolei, "The Green Land" (or alternative, "The Country Burnt Black", i.e. the country that must be struggled for); although the Karen National Union's flag was not given autonomy, you can see it prominent at ceremonies like Karen New Year.
