Myanmar gets new flag, official name, anthem

YANGON (Reuters) – Myanmar's ruling military changed the country's flag, national anthem and official name on Thursday, just over two weeks before the country's first election in 20 years, state media said.
The changes were outlined in a new constitution published in 2008 but the government had not announced a date for their introduction.
The country's new name is the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, instead of the Union of Myanmar.
