[Malawi Unidentified Flag] by Dean McGee, 4 Jun 2002

I looked through my pre computer notes to see if I had a note about this "army flag".  What I found was this Malawi ufe (unidentified flag or ensign).  My notes say that long strips of these flags were visible in TV images of  then President Banda.  It may be the flag of his party, or ???
Dated 14 December 1992, from the BBC (via the CBC (Canadian))

The flag of Banda's party (the Malawi Congress Party) looks quite different, and was the basis for the present Malawi flag.
Your UFE is not the army flag.
Crampton's Complete Guide of Flags (1989) has a description of a military flag of Malawi:
"Red with a yellow climbing lion above the sun and wavy bars like in the crest". (is that a different flag - there is no image -?)
It is of course not the presidential flag - so perhaps a personal flag of Dr Hastings Banda, aka Ngwazi Dr.H. Kamuzu Banda...
Ah well - another Central African mystery!
