personally I think I like the new flag better. But that's just me. I think the Malawi people should use whatever flag they think represents them best :)

I tend to agree with you except that I have never understood why the sun is white rather than yellow, which I think would look much more effective.

Here's another article on the potential change back to the old flag:

It looks like the switch back to the original flag is official:

I think yellow would be nice, but it would probably get confused with Biafra.

http://www.malawi.gov.mw/


but, malawian emabassy in Japan website shows the "new" one

If I were them, I'd simply get rid of the sun altogether. It looks more like an Arab flag than a Sub-Saharan African one...

Live from Olimpic Stadium, now it displays the old malawian flag with the red sun.

Yeah, it seems the new government officialized the change: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Malawi#2012.E2.80.93present

Yeah, I just spoke to a contact of mine and they are going back to the old flag. The picture on the Malawian embassy site must be an error.

I do sort of like the new flag a little better.
