Rangoon City in which CountryYangon city, where the country
Which is the proper name of the country whose capitol is Yangon, Myanmar or Burma? What concept is recognized worldwide?
It' Myanmar. The military junta in 1989 renamed the country from Burma to Myanmar. Besides, Rangoon became Yangon back then. Yangon is not the capitol of Myanmar. It' the biggest town there. Naypyidaw is the capital].....Well, the name'Myanmar' is official recognised abroad. I don't think it's as well-loved as the name'Burma'.
It is Bangladesh, a country bordering Myanmar, where most locals call it "Burma", not Myanmar. Many of them do not even know the meaning of the name. In addition, a significant proportion of the mainstream press uses the phrase "Burma" more often than "Myanmar". In this respect, I would say that the country is known as Burma, either official or unofficial.
Yangon has been succeeded by Nayppidaw as the new capitol. Any made up people following the everyday messages comprehend Myanmar is a new name for Burma.

Yangon, also known as Rangoon, is the biggest city in Myanmar. Until 2006 it was also the capitol. It is situated on the Hlaing riverbank and near the ocean. More than 4 million inhabitants live in Yangon. Prior to World War II, about 55% of the 500,000 inhabitants were Yangon Indians or Southern Asians, and only about a third were Bamar (Burman),Karens, the Chinese, the Anglo-Burmese and others made up the other.
Yangon became the centre of Burma's independent struggle after the First World War. Left-wing Rangoon University has shown the way. Three country wide strike against the British Empire in 1920, 1936 and 1938 began in Yangon. It was under Japanese rule (1942-45) and was badly destroyed during the Second World War. On January 4, 1948, Yangon became the capitol of the Union of Burma when the country gained back its sovereignty from the British Empire.
