Kosovo's unification flag reinforces division

New flag representing five-year-old nation's six main ethnic groups is seen as divisive by critics.

    Kosovo will on Sunday mark five years since it declared independence from Serbia.

    Most people are expected to wave the black and red Albanian flag, however, rather than the Kosovar flag during celebrations.

    The new symbol of multi-ethnic Kosovo, bearing stars representing the six main ethnic groups of the republic, is seen by some as dividing the country.
