Flag of Bhutan (GIF)



The national flag of Bhutan (Dzongkha: འབྲུག་ཡུལ་རྒྱལ་དར) is divided into two diagonally, a yellow triangle at the top and an orange triangle at the bottom. A large white thunder dragon (Druk) stretches along the separation line and looks away. Yellow refers to civil tradition and temporal authority. Orange symbolizes the Buddhist spiritual tradition. Placed between two colors, the dragon represents the equal importance of both civic and monastic traditions. Druk's white expresses the purity of inner thoughts and actions that unite all the ethnic and linguistic peoples of Bhutan. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted in 1969.

In addition, its national emblem, which contains many Buddhist symbols, includes two dragons, one male, and one female, on a lotus, symbolizing purity.

The Bhutan flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
