[New FRELIMO flag] by Antonio Martins, 30 Dec 2004 See also:

New FRELIMO flag

The current Frelimo flag, according to António Kitabulu Teixeira in Lusovex (his report included a photo) is still red with the emblem on the canton, but the emblem has changed recently, so the flag is a new one also.
At this website are shown some Mozambique 2004 Parlament election campaign scenes, where several variant unofficial Frelimo flags with large logo can be seen. The logo shows on green, yellow, and mostely red backgrounds, sometimes with a motto bellow the logo: «Partido da Paz» (peace party) -- this is attested for the green and red variants. These flags have all mirrored backsides, with illegible lettering; the back ground color seem to be the colors of the logo.

The logo is a tall white rectangle with the lettering "FRELIMO" in red bold narrow sans capitals below a square image which portrays an ear of corn (green leaves and stalk, white grains) over a native drum (white with red and black ornament around its belly); the background is red with diagonal stripes along the lower right corner: Almost in the middle of the square a white (wide) stripe, then red (wide), white, green, white (thin), black, white (thin), yellow, white (thin) and red. These come from the national flag (both current and pre-1983 versions), which in turn come from the first Frelimo flag.

According to William Crampton: World of Flags, Studio, 1990, the former flag of FRELIMO was inspired on that of ANC, added with W fimbriations and a red hoist triangle extending about 1/3. The proportions are said to be 5:8.

Unknown FRELIMO (?) Flag

[Unknown FRELIMO (?) flag] by Falko Schmidt, 23 Mar 2001

In the book "Unterwegs am Sambesi" published in the German Democratic Republic in the early 1980s is a color photo with this unknown Flag. The color differs from the first FRELIMO flag. It could not be this flag, because that was shown on the same picture near the UFE.
Falko Schmidt, 23 Mar 2001

On the photo in this book the top stripe is really blue. The known flag of the FRELIMO flies alongside it, so that falsification
of the color is not possible.
