Kazakhstan
Adopted June 4, 1992 [1]
Designed by Shaken Niyazbekov [2]
Proportions 1:2 [3]

The national flag of the Republic of Kazakhstan is a blue rectangle with a gold sun in its centre surrounded by 32 gold beams, and a steppe eagle soaring beneath. Near the hoist is a vertical strip with a national ornament.

SymbolismEdit

The pattern on the flag represents the artistic and cultural traditions of the Khanate and Kazakh people. The light blue symbolizes the various Turkic peoples who make up today's population of the country. The blue also has a religious significance, representing the Sky God to many of the people. A modern interpretation states the blue background stands for Kazakhstan's broad skies, and for freedom. The steppe eagle and the sun represent freedom and the flight toward greater heights. [4]
