Rwanda was an independent Kingdom until it became a German Colony in 1891 and the flag adopted was that of German East Africa. The flag of German East Africa is a white field with a black cross in the top left portion of the flag is red with five five-pointed stars.
In 1916 the area became Ruanda-Urundi under Belgian administration the Belgian black-yellow-red vertical tricolour flag was adopted.
In 1962 the Kingdom of Rwanda finally gained full independence from Belgium and a red-yellow-green vertical tricolour was adopted. In the same year a large R was placed in the centre of the yellow border.
In 2001 a new flag was adopted to represent the unity of the country, as the previous flag was associated with the genocide in 1994.
The flag is a blue-yellow-green horizontal tricolour with golden sun. This gives the look of the land, greenery, sky and sun. The flag is also said to represent the happiness of the population.
