The new government, led by Samora Machel, was a one-party state based on Marxist principles and backed by the Soviet Union and Cuba. However, two years, a long and violent civil war was fought till 1992 between the anti-Communist RENAMO militias and the Marxist FRELIMO regime. Like in the early stages of the Colonial War, RENAMO occupied the rural areas and isolated the urban areas, which were occupied by the FRELIMO. The war caused, among other things, the collapse of the infrastructure, a failed central planning, the exodus of the remaining Portuguese people and the Mozambicans of Portuguese heritage, and, ultimately, widespread famine. Not to mention the mass human rights violations (which included the execution of tens of thousands of people and the sending of many other thousands to re-education camps where the majority died).

->The flag is based on that used by the FRELIMO, and uses all four Pan-African colors. The green, black and yellow stripes represent natural bounty, the African people, and mineral resources, respectively. At the hoist side is a triangle red, colored to symbolize the struggle for independence. At its center is the golden star of Marxism, upon which is superimposed a book, a hoe and an AK-47 with a bayonet attached to the barrel (making this flag the only one in the world to incorporate a modern weapon), symbolizing education, agriculture and the defense of Mozambique's liberty, respectively.

The entry of the Portuguese began with Vasco da Gama's journey in 1498. From the 16th century onwards, it became a Portuguese colony, albeit with lesser influence in world trade and exploration compared to India, Brazil and the Far East. In the early 20th century, its administration was conceded to some private companies, but it was not renewed when Portugal began its new regime by António de Oliveira Salazar.

In 1986, Samora Machel died in a plane crash, allegedly caused by the South African government. His successor, Joaquim Chissano, started to change things, by implementing a capitalist economy, beginning peace talks with RENAMO and elaborating a new constitution and implementing free elections. The year after the civil war ended, 1.5 million Mozambican refugees who had sought asylum in the neighbouring countries returned. In 1996, it became the first nation that was never part of the British Empire that joined UsefulNotes/TheCommonwealth.
