Druk, the Thunder Dragon, is the most prominent feature on the Bhutanese flag. The flag is divided diagonally into yellow and orange. The yellow represents civic authority and comes from traditional royal garb. The orange represents Buddhist spiritual authority. Druk is spread equally across the flag to signify equality between civic and monastic traditions. Druk is white, symbolizing the purity of deed and thought that unites the diverse people of Bhutan. The jewels in Drukís claws signify wealth, while the dragonís snarling mouth represents the deitiesí commitment to defending Bhutan. The current flag has been used since 1969.
This outdoor flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a sturdy white canvas heading and grommets. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back.
This flag is used by Bhutanís government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
