On October 21, 2010, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar's State Flag was formally adopted. The passing of the 2010 Union Flag Law, which superseded the old 1974 State Flag Law, made this adoption possible. On the same day, at 3:00 p.m. local time, the flag was hoisted for the first time, and instructions were issued to burn all former flags.
The current flag, a horizontal tricolor of yellow, green, and red with a white star in the center, is described in detail in the 2010 Union Flag Law. The tricolor background is intended to honor the colors used throughout the country's independence battle. The color yellow represents unity, conformity, wisdom, happiness, and the unification of all national races. Green denotes fertility, uniformity, fairness, and the country's tranquil and cheerful nature. The color red symbolizes bravery and decisiveness. The white star represents purity, honesty, compassion, and power.
