Forces Démocratiques de Liberation de Rwanda 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 rw-flag I've made it yellow.

Martyazo Republic (République de Martyazo) by Zeljko Heimer, 31 Oct 2001
It was a Hutu republic. The Bahutu revolted in 1972 but were defeated in west, centre and east. In the south a Republic called Martyazo was established on 1 May 1972, but it was occupied by the Burundese army (Tutsi) 9 May 1972. The flag was reported to be green with a diagonal stripe from lower hoist to upper fly.
Jaume Ollé, 23 Mar 1998
The diagonal stripe was red.

Front Populair 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 mirrorimaged, which the ordinary flag is if it equals the reverse.
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.
