Forces Démocratiques de Liberation de Rwanda (FDLR)
by Jarig Bakker, 16 Jan 2002
At this website is the flag of Forces Démocratiques de Liberation de Rwanda - Democratic Liberation Forces
of Rwanda - Urugaga Ruharantra Demokarasi no Kubohoza U Rwanda.
The flag on the homepage has a golden centered circle, but as it is
inspired on the old Rwanda flag I've made it yellow.

Front Populaire Rwandais (Patriotic Front of Rwanda)
Because of the upcoming presidential election in Rwanda, there was an article
with a picture in the Stockholm edition of the newspaper Metro today. In
the picture, people could be seen with small handheld flags, which were
vertically divided red - white - blue with the letters FPR, one letter
on each field. That was the front side of the flags. The back side had
the colours in reversed order, so that blue was at the hoist, and the letters
were also not mirror imaged.
It is not mirror imaged, which the ordinary flag is if it equals the
The reverse of this flag look *the same* as the obverse, i.e. not mirror
imaged, but with the flag pole on the other side, like if the
flag staff had been put on the wrong side. Obverse: red-white-blue
from hoist to fly; reverse: blue-white-red from hoist to fly.
