Timphu. Bhutan

Bhutan

Adopted in 1965, the flag of Bhutan contains two colours, yellow and orange with a white dragon along the division line. The colours are divided diagonally forming two triangles. The yellow symbolizes the power of the monarchy and the orange symbolizes the Buddhist religion. The dragon symbolizes “Druk” the thunder dragon of Bhutanese mythology and represents Bhutan`s local Tibetan name “The Land of the Dragon”. The dragon grasping the Jewels stands for the country’s wealth.
