The flag of Kyrgyzstan consists of a red field charged with a yellow sun that contains a depiction of a yurt (traditional tent). It is actually a depiction of the first thing one sees when waking up in a yurt, namely the construction of the pinnacle of every Kyrgyz yurt with three crisscrossing laths across the circular opening at the top of the yurt. Adopted in 1992, just over seven months after the country's independence was declared, to replace the flag of the Kirghiz Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR), it has been the flag of the Kyrgyz Republic since that year. Although the colour of the flag is identical to the former Soviet flag, the red is said to be inspired by the pennant lifted by Manas, the country's folk hero.

They're both on the same lake, but you know is just different picture and yes I am fully aware that in the friend zone the animation included a flag of Switzerland to symbolize medical aid It's funny because I literally had this discussion with Ken the day before we uploaded. I'm like Ken you used a Swiss flag You know we're gonna get a lot of comments on this and we did so for the 19 thousand four hundred and eighty fifth time Ken you're fired, I just can't go on without Ken alright, Ken you're rehired alright so that just about does it let's go into the intro slide shall we without further ado a Cutest and Kazakhstan party animal little brother you can't help, but just love the guy He's got some great dance moves so anyway the flag the flag of Kyrgyzstan is a red banner with a Yellow Sun Containing 40 uniformly spaced rays crossed by two sets of three lines yes I am fully aware that it looks like the Xbox logo, okay like 9422 of you guys already wrote that to me prior to making this video the three cross lines are actually supposed to symbolize the upper cross rods or Duke of the sealing center of a yurt the traditional nomadic housing structure of kyrgyzstan this and return symbolizes the origin of life unity and home the Sun stands for peace and prosperity Whereas the 40 Rays are said to represent the original 40 tribes of? Kyrgyzstan, which were all united under the national hero - and the red stands for Bravery and valor sorry no animation this week hey.

The side with the tian shan mountains in front of a Rising Sun in the background With EC kul lake at the bottom in front of everything is a Falcom or auction mark with wings spreading symbolizing freedom generosity and vigilance on the top and bottom you find the words written in Cyrillic Kyrgyz Republic caste or Kilgus Republic now keep in mind this emblem was actually just adopted in 2016 prior to that they had another emblem that was almost completely identical except the colors were just a little off shaded oh Yeah, and during Soviet times They used this Wow like yeah wow yeah Soviet symbolism has always kind of pushed the limits of detail quantity and quality so yeah That's pretty much it for the kicker, Stan.

During the Central Asian revolt of 1916, Kyrgyz rebels were described as wielding white banners during an attack on Prebechakenska.[1]

Under Soviet rule, the Union Republic – coterminous with modern-day Kyrgyzstan – utilized a flag derived from the flag of the Soviet Union and representing Communism, that was adopted in 1953.[2] It declared itself independent on August 31, 1991, approximately four months before the dissolution of the Soviet Union.[3] Nevertheless, the Soviet-era flag maintained its status as the national flag for seven months after independence was declared.[2] It was finally replaced by the new design on March 3, 1992.[2][4]

The colors and symbols of the flag carry cultural, political, and regional meanings. The red field stands for "bravery and valor",[3] and alludes to the purported emblem hoisted by Manas, the national hero of Kyrgyzstan.[2][5] The sun epitomizes peace and prosperity,[3] while its 40 rays stand for the number of tribes united by Manas to fight against the Mongols,[5][6] as well as the number of followers he had.[2][4]

The centre of the sun features a stylized illustration of the roof (tunduk) atop a traditional Kyrgyz tent (yurt) when viewed from the interior.[2][4][7] Although these tents are less commonly used today,[2] its incorporation into the flag is meant to symbolize the "origin of life", the "unity of time and space", as well as the people's "hearth and home" and their history.[2][4]

Proposals to change

In recent years, a commission was established to examine proposals to modify the design of the flag. The head of this body observed how it was the object of conflict and disunity, and that the government did not want this national symbol to be the cause of further division in society. This partially stemmed from disagreement over the interpretation of the symbols on the current flag.[8] For instance, modern-day Kyrgyzstan is ethnically diverse, with sizeable minority groups such as the Uzbeks (14.3%) and Dungans (1.1%) living there.[3] These groups were historically conquered by Manas, and hence, the current flag – inspired by his emblem utilized in war – does not sit well with some of them.[8]

The red field has also been the source of much criticism. Some believe that it evokes the nation's tempestuous history, while others are of the opinion that it is a lingering remnant of communism in the country.[8]

Regional flags

Each region (областы, oblasty or облусу, oblusu) of Kyrgyzstan has its own flag.
