The flag is green, with a central emblem of a crouching lion in yellow. The name is written in yellow above the emblem in Burmese script.

The primary source of this flag is a personal, local observation by Michel
Lupant, reported, with due credit, in Francia
Vexilla (27/73, September 2002; 28/74, December 2002). The original
artwork in Francia Vexilla is by HervÃ© Calvarin. The image above as
published in Wikipedia was made by Jaume OllÃ©.
