[Bahr el Ghazel province was renamed Central Equatoria in 2005 and is one of ten Sudanese States that make up the newly independent Republic of South Sudan. The state capital of Juba is also the national capital of South Sudan. The flag shown here is no longer in use. - Ed]
The former Sudanese provinces adopted flags - as a rule
these were monocolour
with a local symbol in the center. The flag of Kordofan (also spelt Kurdufan) shown here was used prior to the province being split into three
new federal states of North Kurdufan, South Kurdufan and West Kurdufan in 1994.

[In August 2005, West Kurdufan State was abolished and its territory divided between North and South Kurdufan States as part of the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement which led to the independence of South Sudan in July 2011. - Ed]

The flag of the Upper Nile region (1983-1991) and later state (1991-1994) has a light blue field with the regional emblem in white in the centre - a cow and suckling calf - with the name of the region on a scroll below.
