Flag of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland

The Flag of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland was a modified British Blue Ensign. Centered in the fly of the flag was a depiction of the shield from the Federation's Coat of Arms. The rising sun is taken from the Arms of Nyasaland (now Malawi), the lion rampant is taken from the Arms of Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), and the black and white wavy lines is taken from the Arms of Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). In this form, it accurately shows the Federation of all three British Colonies which lasted from 1953 to December 31, 1963. This flag flew alongside the Union Jack for the duration of the existence of the Federation.[1]
