Karaganda, Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan

The national flag of Kazakhstan contains a light blue field that symbolizes the various Turkic peoples that make up the current population of the country.  The light blue also represents the sky god Gök-Tanry and water as well.  In the center is a sun and a golden eagle.  The sun symbolizes the source of life and wealth.  The golden eagle had been used by different Kazakh tribes on their flags as a symbol of the power of state.  For Kazakhstan the eagle represents independence, freedom and flight to the future.  The pattern on the fly represents the cultural traditions and art of the Khanate and the Kazakh people.  The flag of Kazakhstan was adopted on June 4, 1992.
