So apparently this is the official flag that wiki's using now, it's from the Kazakh president's website.

There is no major change other than the difference in tone. Additionally, it is not clear whether this change is permanent or not. Turquoise color appears on both English and Kazakh flag pages.


I spend a lot of time creating and reloading all the flags. So I'm thinking of waiting until it becomes clear.
