This is the new flag of Rwanda, effective 1-Jan-2002. The new flag has a golden sun with 24 rays on a field of green, yellow and blue. The red and black colors of the old flag were replaced by sky blue, with the yellow rays of the sun shining down from the top right-hand corner. Unlike the old Rwanda flag, this flag has no red, with its connotations of blood spilt, nor black with its symbolism of gloom and mourning.
