Flag of Bhutan (GIF)

The national flag of Bhutan (Dzongkha: འབྲུག་ཡུལ་རྒྱལ་དར) is rectangular, divided diagonally into two parts: the upper saffron-yellow, symbolizing the country's secular power and tradition, and the lower orange, symbolizing the practice of religion and the spiritual power of Buddhism. Druk, the Thunder Dragon, appears in white in the center, clutching jewels in its claws, representing the wealth and security of the nation. The dragon points towards the significance of the country's protection and the people's commitment to sustainable happiness and well-being, reflecting the unique blend of spiritual and worldly values that Bhutan upholds. The dragon also embodies the name of Bhutan in the local language, Druk Yul. Additionally, the jewels are a symbol of the wealth of the country, and the snarling mouth of the dragon symbolizes Bhutan's commitment to protecting its sovereignty and its people. Overall, the flag of Bhutan intricately encapsulates the nation's rich cultural heritage, deep spiritual traditions, and the enduring pursuit of prosperity and security.
