Kazakhstan’s flag, designed by Shaken Niyazbekov, was adopted in 1992. The blue color is religiously significant to the Turkic people of the region and represents unity as well as the endless sky and water. The sun, a source of life and energy, represents wealth and plentitude. Its rays are shaped like grain, symbolizing abundance and prosperity. The eagle, which has been used by Kazakh tribes for centuries, represents freedom, power, and flight into the future. The ornamental pattern on the hoist side is koshkar-muiz
, “the horns of the ram.”
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro hang tab and bordered with gold rayon fringe. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Kazakhstan’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
