#542 Myanmar...Thanks Thitar!

This stamp was issued on Jan.04,2011 celebrating the 63rd Independence Day of Myanmar.

The British controlled the country from 1826 until 1948, when it was granted independence. The country’s name was changed from Burma to the Union of Myanmar in 1989 to reflect that the population is made up not just of the Burmese but of many other ethnic groups as well.
