Flag of Bhutan (GIF)


The national flag of Bhutan 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, male and female, on a lotus, symbolizing purity.

The Bhutan flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked country in South Asia and is located in the eastern Himalayas. Its capital is Thimphu, and its population is about 742,000.
