The Presidential flag of Mozambique is a red field (2:3 proportion) with
the coat of arms centered and fimbriated in white. The interior part of
the arms shows a map of the country bordered by water (the Indian Ocean)

This is presumably the flag as adopted in 1975 (and as shown by several
authors as indicated on FOTW). At one time the ratio is, apparently changed
to 3:4, possibly at the same time when the inscription on the Coat of Arms was changed
in 1990 from "Republica Popular de Moçambique" to "Republica

larger than that which is shown on our original image above.
