Rwanda Flag

In 1959, three years before independence, the majority ethnic group, the Hutus overthrew the ruling Tutsi king. Over the next several years thousands of Tutsis were killed, and some 150,000 driven into exile in neighboring countries. The first flag raised in 1961was red, green and yellow, the Pan-African colours, and was similar to the flag of Mali, but this was soon changed to the current configuration of red, yellow and green.

The configuration of the flag as a tri-colour was probably based on the French tri-colour, a layout popular with designers of revolutionary flags. However, this made the flag identical to the flag of Guinea, in order to rectify this, the letter "R" was added to signify the name of the new state -Rwanda- but also to stand for the formation of the new state by "R"eferendum and "R"evolution.
