The centuries of Colonialism had a tremendous impact on the life of the African people: the many fights for territory had filled the life of the native Africans with terror and bloodshed.
However, one thing that any war could not take away from this people is hope, a hope that can be seen engraved in the national symbols of the countries.
The most captivating facts and history of the Malawi flag is the time when it was created: when the African countries stared to fight for their independence.
This African flag tells a particularly moving and real story having four elements combined: the nature expressed through the green colour standing as base for the African indigenous people (black colour) that had to endure the loss of many people and sacrificed their life for liberty (red colour).
The red sun represents the hope that never dies in the heart of the Malawi citizens striving for liberty and freedom.
