Malawi adopted this flag in 1964. The rising sun represents the dawn of hope and freedom for the continent of Africa, because at the time many African colonies were gaining independence. Black represents the African people, red stands for their struggle, and green symbolizes nature.
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro hang tab and bordered with gold rayon fringe. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Malawi’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
