How to rename a branch in git

Recently, I have come across to a need to rename an existing git branch. I googled and found the way to do it. Basically, it's a three step procedure.

First, we rename the old branch into the new one.
git branch -m master master-old
Then we will remove the old branch from the remote repository.
git push remote :master # delete master
And now we push our newly created branch to the repository.
git push remote master-old # create master-old on remote
