Adopted October 25, 2001 [1]
Designed by Alphonse Kirimobenecyo [2]
Proportions 2:3 [3]

The flag of Rwanda is a horizontal tricolour of light blue, yellow, and green. The upper stripe of light blue takes up half of the background of the flag, and the other two lower stripes of yellow and green are equal in thickness. In the upper fly canton of the flag is a stylized golden yellow sun with 24 equally spaced rays of equal length.

Symbolism[]

The flag has four colours: blue, green, and two forms of yellow (standard yellow for the middle band and what the Pantone system calls "sun yellow" for the sun); the difference between the two yellows is barely noticeable.

The blue band represents happiness and peace, the yellow band symbolizes economic development, and the green band symbolizes the hope of prosperity. The sun represents enlightenment.
