Myanmar's present flag (also known as Burma) was adopted on 21 October 2010 to supersede the flag used since 1974. This new flag was launched together with the implementation of name changes set out in the 2008 Constitution. Both of the flag the nation used just before the 2010 flag came from Burma's resistance, which adopted a flag with a bright orange in its fight against the occupation troops of Japan during the Second World War.
Adopted on 3 January 1974 after the statement of a Ne Win Party, the new flag has a similar relationship to the one of the former flag and shows 14 gearing points and a riceplant in a blue-coloured country against a reddish area. During the 8888 uprising in 1988, the 14-star flag was turned on its head by demonstrators as a symbol of protests against the war.
Another new theme was suggested in September 2007, this one with a bigger blank asterisk in the center and with the strips in a different order, namely: amber, red, green This order was also used in the flag of the state of Burma during the Burmese Japans who had a red pepper in the center.
It was a merger of the flag of the state of Burma without the regal pepper, which instead took the blank badge that symbolized the Union of Burma in the flag state. This new flag is a three-coloured flag of three colours: orange, blue, green with a five-pointed flag and a five-pointed one.
Yellows stand for solidity, greens for peacefulness, tranquillity and luxuriant greens, reds for bravery and resolve, and the flag indicates the importance of unifying the country Greens, yellows and reds are also regarded as the pan-African colors, indicating to critics that the new flag was clearly "African" and even mistaken for the flag of an African country.
