The Kyrgyz flag, adopted in 1992, features a yellow sun against a red background. At the sun’s center is a ring crossed by 2 sets of 3 lines to represent a tunduk
, the crown of a traditional yurt (dwelling). The red background is symbolic of honor and valor, the sun represents peace and wealth, and the tunduk
signifies the home and, by extension, the universe. Some say that the sun’s 40 rays stand for the 40 tribes united by Manas, the epic hero, against the Mongols.
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 Kyrgyzstan’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
