The National Flag of Burma that was adopted in 2010

Burma (also known as Myanmar) is a sovereign state in South East Asia bordered by India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. It can trace its civilisation back to the 9th century. It had strong ties with Britain and was a British colony until 1948 when it became a unified state. From 1962 to 2011 the country was under military rule. The military junta was dissolved in 2011 and there are signs that this resource rich country with a population of 60 million could develop rapidly over the coming years.
